Workplace Connections

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. You can help navigate the opportunities, and prepare your mentee to present themselves to employers.

Requirements:

  • Three years of local experience in any profession
  • Links to professional and business networks
  • An interest in other cultures
  • Great interpersonal skills

The time commitment is flexible and you can adapt to suit your schedule. All mentors receive training and ongoing support from program staff.

“My mentor experience has been going really well. I have a great mentee because she is so motivated to find the work she wants. I think the most challenging part has been watching her work so hard and still not find a job in her field but you warned me that might happen when I started. Overall, I have really enjoyed the experience and plan to continue with the program.”

“Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to work with such an amazing group. I felt so good at the end of the Working Session and even all day today because I felt the joy that the participants were exuding.”
