The Professional Interior Designers Institute of Manitoba is committed to enhancing the practice of Interior Design in Manitoba, and to educating the public about the benefits of Interior Design. As a professional body, its aim is to improve quality of life, and protect the health, safety and welfare of the public through the design of the interior environment.
In 1949, a group of student interior designers at the University of Manitoba formed the Society of Student Interior Designers (S.S.I.D.). The Society’s first objective was “to obtain Legislative recognition of Interior Designers in Manitoba and later in Canada.” As a result of the groundwork initiated by the S.S.I.D, an organization of professionals was formed; the Manitoba Institute of Interior Designers (M.I.I.D.). Shortly thereafter, members of the M.I.I.D group submited a bill to incorporate an Act cited as “the Interior Designers Act”. The professional organization name was revised for the passing of the Bill to the Interior Designers Institute of Manitoba (I.D.I.M).
