Who is the CSIA?
Founded in 1938 and incorporated in 1949 as a not-for-profit organization, the CSIA is the professional ski teaching body in Canada. It is a federally recognized teaching institution and it trains and certifies ski instructors to best serve its partners such as ski schools and the Canadian skiing public.
Canada has six CSIA regions: British Columbia, Alberta, Central, Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic — each represented on the Board of Directors. The six members of the National Board of Directors conduct the affairs and business of the CSIA. Regional affairs and member services are addressed through Regional Committees, who are serving regional needs through member newsletters, regional events and Level 1 Courses.
