In 1999, a group of dedicated New Brunswick professionals formed the Project Management
Institute - New Brunswick Chapter (PMI-NB) www.pmi-nb.ca, which was officially incorporated
as a non-profit organization by the New Brunswick (NB) government on June 5, 2000 and was
designated as a Chapter by PMI® headquarters on June 19, 2000. Though provincial in scope,
there are three primary centres in Moncton, Saint John and Fredericton.
The PMI-NB Chapter consists of over 170 members. PMI-NB manages professional study
groups, hosts business dinner/luncheon meetings and conducts project management forums.
Annual General Meetings (AGMs) and other Provincial activities are currently rotated between
Moncton, Saint John and Fredericton with each center holding its own local events.
