Hello CANSI members,

I hope you’re making snowy tracks wherever you are in Canada – I would be except for shoulder surgery this week.

December is one of the busiest months for ski instructors. There are refreshers to take and courses to give, not to mention time to spend with friends and family. That said, this may be a tough ask, but I’ll give it a go: have you considered volunteering for CANSI?

We know our members have a wide range of talents beyond sliding on snow, and we could use your help in several areas: on our website and manuals and in our communication in general. Our regions are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers too. If you’d like to help out in some way, please contact Garry Almond at 416-708-6430 or email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Now that I’ve asked what you can do for the association, what can the association do for you? Is there some way that we can make CANSI more valuable to you as a member? Please let us know by contacting the National Office.

Thank you to everyone who took part in our AGM on December 8. Several reports were available when you registered for the AGM and all are available now when you log in. To find AGM reports and information, log into, click on the three lines at the top left of the page, then click on Documents > Meetings and select your language.

You can also find lots of other useful CANSI resources (including the new Instructor Guide) under the headings Documents , Videos and ProDeals.

For detailed information on the courses that you have registered for, check My Courses.

Here’s wishing everyone a wonderful, restful, fun and snowy holiday season.

Denys Lawrence, CANSI president.
