Happy New Year!
We hope everyone enjoyed a happy and healthy peaceful holiday season.
GPI North America has been keeping busy adjusting to the Covid affected reality of 2020. Since travel restrictions and quarantine rules have stopped all short term programs we have had to pivot our business to provide online programs to students and schools in Japan. Students are able to experience some Canadian culture in the comfort of their own home, or their school’s computer lab. We are forever grateful to our volunteer university students and host families who have been able to share a bit of Canadian culture with these students.
We hope 2021 will be another step towards a return to ‘normal’. In addition to continuing our online programs we will be welcoming a few select long-term students to Canada in the spring and fall. It may be challenging for students to follow the new Covid testing rules for entry into Canada, and quarantine periods but they are very keen to study English in Canada.
Wishing everyone a wonderful 2021!
