All have key roles in marketing our GV locations and ensuring safe and high-quality student experiences.

“I wish to acknowledge the supreme efforts of all staff at GV Victoria over the last two years and am delighted that Global Village is once again expanding to Calgary which we know so well. It is also my pleasure to re-introduce Lynn Wyton who was instrumental in setting up the former GV school in Calgary and founding the GV Victoria location. In recent years, Lynn has continued his stellar career in economic development in both the private and public sector through significant contributions in the aviation, education and tourism sectors in particular.”
