Western Management Consultants (WMC)




Western Management Consultants (WMC) is an independent Canadian management consulting firm with offices in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto. Since WMC’s inception in 1975, the firm has grown in size and stature. With more than 45 full-time professionals, the firm offers an array of management consulting services to private and public sector clients across Canada.

WMC’s expertise lies in Leadership, Transformation and Strategy. This expertise is afforded to clients through an array of uncommon resources who deliver exceptional value. The overwhelming majority of WMC consultants possess over 15 years of consulting experience and this shows in their work. There is a quiet confidence in their manner and they consistently deliver.

WMC pride themselves on the quality of their work and the attention to detail that goes into all aspects of their consulting and client relationships. They offer expertise only in those areas where they have proven competence and do not seek or accept work where they don’t have the required resources or capabilities. The degree of repeat business and ongoing client relationships WMC enjoys is due to the quality of work they deliver and the degree of client satisfaction with the results accomplished.

WMC is a strong supporter of the Canadian Association of Management Consultants (CAMC), Canada’s single voice for management consulting. A number of WMC’s professional staff are members and subscribe to the rules of professional conduct and Code of Ethics that the CAMC endorses.


Based in Calgary, Alberta, the Affiliate management consultant will enjoy complete access to the office, facilities and support services of WMC’s ideally located Calgary downtown ‘centre-ice’ office. The Affiliate joins a team of professionals each functioning as independent management consultants possessing and providing their own set of skills and expertise, but collectively working together to grow the business and collaborate for optimum client service and benefit.

To their Affiliates, WMC offers “our brand, our support, our people, our independence, our business networks and our culture”.
