In 1982, Manitoba was the second province to enact legislation creating an Interior Design profession. The Interior Designers Act had recently become law, and provided that the association would be renamed “The Professional Interior Designers Institute of Manitoba” and only recognized members would be permitted to use the title Professional Interior Designer, The PIDIM would be responsible for professional development, admission standards, and ethical conduct.
