A message the President of the St. John's
I would like to welcome you to the St. John's Chapter's website
of the Financial Management Institute (FMI). The chapter was
established in November 2002 and has enjoyed a very favorable
response from Federal and Provincial governments, as well as the
Private Sector and Non-Profit organizations in the St. John's
The Executive committee intends to support professional
development in St. John's with financial management presentations
based upon areas of interest expressed by our membership.

What is fmi*igf?
The Financial Management Institute (fmi*igf) of Canada is a
dynamic, contemporary organization for professionals dedicated to
the management of public sector resources. Nationally, there are
approximately 2,400 members.
Commencing in 1975, the FMI embarked upon a strategy of engaging
government and government-related professionals in national and
local PD initiatives to improve our ability to provide the highest
level of financial management. By the 1980s, six chapters were
formed across the country, and currently, 14 chapters exist today.
The St. John's Chapter was formed in 2002.
The Objectives of the Institute
To promote members' understanding of the financial management
practices of the Public Sector;
To inform members of developments in Public Sector financial
management practices through meetings, seminars, lectures, a
professional journal, articles, news bulletins, and other suitable
means as determined by the Board of Directors;
To actively facilitate and encourage the integration of the
financial function with the broader management function and promote
a more professional and progressive financial community.
