The Mentoring Partnership brings together recent skilled immigrants and established professionals in occupation-specific mentoring relationships. Skilled immigrants entering the program have the education, experience, and language skills they need to succeed in the labour market. What they need are the local insights and access to professional networks that only a one-to-one professional
connection with a mentor can offer.
Now operating for over five years in the Greater Toronto Region, The Mentoring Partnership hasfacilitated over 5,800 mentoring relationships between skilled immigrants and established Canadian professionals. Since the launch of the program, over 50 organizations have offered The Mentoring Partnership to their staff as an opportunity to enhance their leadership and coaching competencies, and develop their cross-cultural skills.
