Mentorship Program Launch with Canadian Federal Departments
An inaugural meeting between mentors from four federal government departments in BC and 11 skilled new Canadians marked the start of a ground-breaking mentoring program led by the Immigrant Employment Council of BC (IEC-BC).
Canadian Heritage, along with Passport Canada, Citizenship and Immigration Canada, and Western Economic Diversification Canada are all participating in the first program phase.
Over the next four months, immigrant professionals will work with their Canadian peers to learn about local business practices, increase their understanding of the BC workplace culture, access professional networks, and boost their cross-cultural communication and career-search skills.
Venue provided by Department of Canadian Heritage. Orientations facilitated and supported by Chris Mara and Astarte Sands from Mosaic BC, Laurie Sing from ISSofBC, and representatives from S.U.C.C.E.S.S.
