“Scotia Personnel Ltd. helped me experience a life-altering experience that has helped shape my dreams into realities.”

Chantel B.

“I was in Korea for a year…Scotia Personnel went above and beyond to help me with anything and everything I needed before I left. I live in Canada and my passport is U.K. so I had some complicated visa issues and Scotia Personnel took care of each issue that came up. My placement was exactly what I wanted and the experience was overall truly amazing. If your thinking about teaching overseas don’t hesitate, take the opportunity while you can, and go with Scotia Personnel to place you. You will not regret it!”

An experience where I was able to make life long friends and a life long partner and I cannot thank Scotia Personnel & Marilyn enough.”
