"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."
