Established in 1990, the Canadian International School began as a day school with the aim of readying its students for a university education. Back then it was known as the Canadian Overseas College. The Canadian International School is located next to Amber 45 which is just minutes walk away from Marine Parade.

The school began with a student body of just six with one staff member per student, since then they have changed their name to the Canadian International School and at present the student body stands at over three thousand students from seventy countries. The school offers students an education from pre-kindergarten right through to grade 12 which is taught across two campuses. The campuses are set in the east and the west of Singapore. The Tanjong Katong campus is situated in the east of the city and stands as a Singapore Heritage listed site.
In the last few years, a lot has been going on in the construction sector of the Singaporean economy, with each passing new developments springing with surprising convenience. Among these, the Amber 45 stands out as it is poised to solve quite an amazing number of housing challenges faced by the populace. The construction which takes advantage of one, two and three bedroom units is said to be designed to meet the needs of the modern day Singaporean. Having two different views, each one is set to offer the occupants a serenading view of the surrounding city and since flats are from the sixth floor, there is almost no chance of an occupant’s view being obstructed.
