Introducing CISPA

CISPA – Working together to enrich the CDNIS experience

Welcome to CISPA, the Canadian International School Parents’ Association. Powered solely by parent volunteers, CISPA works throughout the year to enrich the CDNIS experience.

Through CISPA’s activities and events, we aim to build a warm, friendly school community. We also provide a wealth of resources for parents. There is a quick link to the Parent Information Handbook on our website, as well as helpful posts that put important details right at your fingertips. CISPA supports the educational and social aims of the school, working with administration, teachers and students to enhance learning and life at CDNIS. For a summary of our activities, please see the section on Committees and Activities.

All our activities, events and resources are publicized via our website, the CISPA Parent Pinboard on Facebook, and are emailed directly to the school community via the CDNIS Flash.

As a volunteer-run organization, all parents and guardians are welcome to become active participants. CISPA relies on individuals like you from our community to organize programmes and events, and introduce fresh ideas. Join us! To volunteer or to learn more, simply send an email to

On behalf of your Board of Directors, we look forward to welcoming you to the CDNIS 2021-2022 school year.
