CAIS Corporate Sponsorship Program


About CAIS

The Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS) includes over 90 schools which are committed to the mission of continual whole school improvement. Each of the member schools undergoes a reflective and collaborative accreditation process, meeting rigorous National Standards.

As a community of independent schools, we explore and pursue exemplary leadership training, research, national collaborative initiatives and international standards of educational excellence.


For the safety of our members and sponsors, CAIS’s 2020 Heads & Chairs Conference and the 2021 National Leaders Conference will be virtual.

For 2020/2021 CAIS is launching a new Corporate Sponsorship Program. This new program allows your company to interact with a range of senior level professionals within our CAIS community. This also allows sponsors to maximize their return on investment with benefits being provided all year round.

Sponsorship is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to the professional development of independent school leaders. All Sponsors, at various levels, receive increasing degrees of exposure via virtual and online promotions. Company logos are integrated throughout our web and digital marketing content.

Becoming a Corporate Sponsor allows you to build visibility for your brand, connects you with educators, and gives you a forum to share your organization’s expertise.
