During COVID-19, our general Volunteer program is suspended. Please check in once the COVID-19 emergency declarations end, as we truly do appreciate your desire to volunteer with us. However, we are still accepting applicants with business experience to be a Career Mentor — helping immigrants prepare for career success in Canada. For more information, click here.
Just ‘one day’ of your life can transform the life of a new Canadian.
As a Career Mentor, you will spend up to 24 hours over three months mentoring a new immigrant as they prepare career success in Canada. Your knowledge of the local market and of Canadian workplace culture is invaluable to immigrant professions. With your help, immigrant professionals can better navigate the local labour market, job opportunities, and be prepared to present themselves to likely employers.
To be successful as a Career Mentor, you should have:
- Three years of local experience in your profession
- Links to professional and business networks
- An interest in other cultures
- Strong interpersonal skills
The volunteer time commitment is flexible and can accommodate your schedule. All Mentors receive training and ongoing support from program staff.
