Thank you for your patience.

Updates coming soon.


  • Using the site

    We are pleased to launch the 2020 membership renewal and new CMC-Canada website. 

    We hope you enjoy the modern look and function of the new site for mobile and desktop, including improved navigation and security.

    A new site also means new ways of doing things. We will walk you through the steps to gain access to the member section and renew your membership for 2020.  

    As we touched on last week, we will be rolling out website functionality in three phases. 
    • Phase I (available now): The first time you log in to the new site you will be instructed to reset your password (min. 10 characters). You will then be able to log in to your account and renew your membership. 
    • Phase II (by year end): We will reinstate blog and community services, and transition event registration. 
    • Phase III (Q1 2020) - We will launch an improved 'Find a Consultant' online service and enhanced Professional Development with the implementation of a new Learning Management System. 
    We appreciate your patience during this time and look forward to providing you with an exceptional member experience in the months ahead.

  • What is my username/password?

    You will use the same username and password that you use to log in to the main site. If you have forgotten your login credentials or need assistance with your login information, click here.

  • How do I update my contact information?

    From your profile page, click "Edit Contact Information."

  • How do I control what information is visible in My Profile?

    Go to "My Profile”  and click on the “Settings” tab. Choose "Privacy" from the drop-down menu. This will let you control what information is visible to whom. After you’ve made changes, click the “Save” button at the bottom of the page.

Communities / Discussions

  • What are communities?

    Communities allow you to participate in discussions and share resources with other members.

  • What communities do I already belong to?

    Go to “Communities” in the main navigation bar. Select “My Communities” to view the communities you’re currently a part of.

  • How do I join/subscribe to a community and the affiliated Discussion Group?

    Hover over “Communities” and click on “All Communities” in order to see a list of available communities. Click on the community that you wish to join and simply click "Join," then choose a delivery option for posts (Real Time, Daily Digest, Legacy or No Email).

  • How can I control the frequency and format of emails I receive?

    Go to My Profile and click on the "Settings" tab. Choose Subscriptions from the drop-down menu. On that page, you'll see an option for Text or HTML. By default, this is set to HTML, and we encourage you to leave it set to this if your email client can support it. However, if you are having problems viewing the HTML version or if it takes too long to open, please switch to the text version.

    For each discussion, you have the following delivery options:

    • Real time: sends an email every time a new message is posted
    • Daily digest: sends one email to you each day, consolidating all of the posts from the previous day
    • Legacy: sends real-time text versions of the posts, which are compatible with Blackberries and most other handheld devices. This option also allows you to reply without logging into a web browser, but it does NOT allow you to include attachments with your post.
    • No Email: allows you to be part of the group without having emails sent to you. You can still post and read others’ messages by logging into the community site.
  • How do I leave a community or unsubscribe from a discussion?

    Go to My Profile and click on the "Settings" tab. Choose Subscriptions from the drop-down menu. Here, you will see a list of available communities and those to which you’ve subscribed. Select “Unsubscribe” for the discussions you wish to leave and click the “Save” button at the bottom of the page. You will get a message confirming that your subscription options have been successfully updated. This can take several seconds if you change your settings for several groups at the same time.

  • How do I respond to others’ posts?

    Click “Reply to Discussion” to send your message to the entire community or “Reply to Sender” to only send your message back to the sender; both links are located to the right of the post. We recommend replying to the sender for simple comments like “me, too” that add little value to the overall discussion; and replying to the entire community when you are sharing knowledge, experience or resources that others could benefit from.

  • How do I start a new discussion thread?

    Go to “Participate" > “Post a message.” From an email (HTML version) for a particular discussion forum, you can use the “Post Message” link in the right navigation bar.

  • I’m having trouble viewing the HTML email messages. How do I fix this?

    If images are not appearing, it is likely that your email client is set to suppress images. This should be something you can change in your security or viewing options. If you would rather receive text-based email, go to My Profile and click on the "Settings" tab. Choose Subscriptions from the drop-down menu. Select the “Text” format option near the top of the page. Be sure to hit “Save” at the bottom of the page once you’ve made this change.

  • Why do I have to post messages and reply through the website?

    There are many features made possible because of the web interface:

    • When you send an attachment through this new system, it automatically places it in the Community’s library and sends a link to members.
    • Because it sends a link, you can share files up to 1GB in size and just about any file type.   
    • All posts and associated resources are automatically archived and easily searchable.
  • Can I search for posts across all the communities?

    Yes. Enter a keyword in the search bar. From the results page, you can filter on content type, date range or posted by. Click on "Advanced Search" for even more options.

  • How do I set-up registration for a new event / post an event on the website?

    To post a new event, please contact Emma Girduckis at the National Office ( or T: 416-860-1515| 800-268-1148)
    Sarah will need the following information to post the event:

    • Event Name
    • Event Description
    • Date, Time and Location
    • Guest Speaker bio (if there is a speaker). You can also include a picture for the marketing email.
    • Cost (member, non-member, affiliate pricing)

    Ideally, we would like this information 4-6 weeks before the event to properly market it.

  • How do I see a listing of all of the posts to a specific Community?

    Locate the community you are interested in viewing from the appropriate communities page. Click through the community's landing page, then click on the “Discussions” tab. If you see a post you’re interested in, click the subject line which will take you to the entire thread. “Show original message” at the bottom of all of the posts in a thread will display the original message that started that discussion. The “Author’s Messages” link will show you all of the posts that particular member has contributed to that community.


  • How do I find resources that may have been uploaded by other members?

    If you know which library the resource might be located in, find the community on the appropriate communities page. Click through the community's landing page, then click on the “Library” tab . If you do not know where the resource might be, enter search terms in the main search box the same way you might enter search terms into Google or another search engine.

  • Can I search for specific file types?

    Yes. Enter your desired keyword in the main search box. From the search results page, click "Show Advanced Search."  Then click on “Search for Specific File Types.” This gives you the option to specify file type: Document, Image, Spreadsheet, etc.

  • How do the libraries get populated?

    The libraries are populated in two ways: When you include an attachment in a discussion post, the system automatically places it in the library. You can also upload documents directly by using the “Share a file” link found under “Participate” in the main navigation or "Create a new library entry" on any community's library page. Library resources are not required to be associated with a discussion thread.

  • How do I upload a file?

    Select the “Share a file” link found under “Participate” in the main navigation or "Create a new library entry" on any community's landing page. Please note that uploading a document is done in a few steps, and each step must be completed before you can move on to the next:

    • Choose a title for your document, include a description (optional), select the library to which you’d like to upload it, select a folder to which you’d like to upload it (optional) and choose an Entry Type (most will be Standard Files, but be cognizant of any copyright licensed material). Then click “Next.”
    • Browse and upload your file. Click “Next” if you want to add tags to your file or click “Finish” (you may have to scroll down to access these buttons).
  • What kind of files can I upload?

    The system supports dozens of file types including hyperlinks, standard files (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), webinars, images and YouTube videos.

  • What are the “tags” for?

    Tags are another way of organizing and searching for documents. You can help others find the file you uploaded by including tags when you upload it. There are many pre-loaded tag categories to choose from.
