Be a Mentor - Share Your Knowledge and Hone Your Leadership Skills!

Our mentorship program brings together internationally trained professionals (ITPs) and established Canadian professionals from the same fields.

Being a mentor is a wonderful way to enhance your leadership and coaching skills. It’s also an opportunity to have a lasting impact on the career path of an ITP by helping them to transition to the Canadian labour market and to life in Northern Ontario.

To find out how you or your employees can become mentors to an ITP, contact us at 1.866.210.3020 or send an email to [email protected].

Mentorship Success:

“Many times, the mentor learns just as much from the mentee. The experience is a two-way street.”
