We will launch the program with a pilot project between March 2011 and May 2011, for a selected group. The pilot program will comprise one mentor and 6 mentees in a sector specific mentoring group. Once the group is matched, they will take part in 5 mentoring sessions over a course of 4 months. The main program will commence in June 2011.
If you are a new immigrant or a seasoned Canadian professional, we encourage you to be a part of this program.
