CMI Publishing is a division of Complete Marketing Inc. Based in Calgary, Alberta, we serve the local as well as the international travellers who come to experience the history, culture, landscapes and nature that are unique to Alberta & British Columbia.
Our core values are honesty, integrity and accountability. The founder of CMI Publishing is Bob Harris. Bob and his team treat everyone with these three values in mind. Our relationships with our readers, advertisers, contributors, and sponsors are our central focus.
Experience the Mountain Parks was launched by CMI Publishing in the summer of 2005, as a complimentary “spin off” from the Parks Canada Mountain Guide – a project we helped develop from 1997 – 2005.
500,000 copies of the first edition of our visitors’ guide to the mountain parks of western Canada came off the press in the spring of 2006. It was designed as a lure piece to entice readers to come to the mountain parks, as well as a companion guide for those travellers enroute and/or already visiting the region.
Experience the Mountain Parks is our flagship, but not our only publication. All of our map projects and guides are designed to enrich the visitors’ experience within the provincial and national parks and throughout the region. We strive to create user-friendly publications and on-line tools that promote good stewardship of these lands and the environment here in western Canada. For more information about all of our visitor guides go here.
Our company had its humble beginnings in the home of our Founders. Bob still often works from home, or on the road, but we have offices in South Calgary and representatives in Millet, Calgary, Priddis, Kelowna, and Brighton. To learn more about our team, go here.
We relaunched our companion web site at ExperienceMountainParks.ca, on Sept 16, 2009 and again in 2013. Over the years, we’ve launched sister sites at CMIpublishing.ca, ExperienceTheCowboyTrail.com, and ExperienceCalgaryGreenway.com.
Social media continues to grow and impact every aspect of our lives. CMI Publishing has focussed our human resources on our Twitter account at twitter.com/BHarris_Calgary. Please follow us there as well as on our blog feed.
