Tanis Wood

Manitoba / Ontario Regional Manager

"Mrs. Tanis Wood started working with GPI in 2005 as a Program Coordinator, graduating to the role of Manitoba Regional Manager in 2007. She has worked with 19 schools in Manitoba & Kenora, Ontario, and has helped place over 175 students in Canadian homestays in her region. Working with her PCs, Tanis ensures her students enjoy their experiences in Manitoba & Kenora, despite the sometimes challenging realities of a harsh climate and living in a rural community. She’s proud of her students for embracing the activities and experiences their communities and schools have to offer, and for becoming active members of their communities – enriching both their own experience as well as the lives of local residents."

Jeannette Eddolls

Saskatchewan Regional Manager

"Since 2003, Ms. Jeannette Eddolls has been GPI’s Regional Manager in the province of Saskatchewan. She and the team of Program Coordinators have placed more than 600 international students in homestays and schools across the province. Knowing every student faces profound challenges during their studies in a new country with a very different language and cultural practices, she strives to provide a high level of support during their stay. Ms. Eddolls takes great pleasure in seeing her students embrace Canadian culture through their homestay, school, and community interactions."
