Over 500 volunteer Mentors (Ottawa professionals) support newcomers to employment in Ottawa every year. The mentorship experience is a win-win for both Mentor and Mentee; enhanced cross-cultural competency, development of career coaching and leadership skills and for newcomer clients; enhanced experience of the Canadian work culture and employment within their field.
Join us for interactive sessions with our ‘Mentee Alumnus’; listen to their success stories and discuss mentoring best practises with our seasoned Mentors.
This event will benefit international newcomers and Ottawa professionals interested in learning about the benefits of mentoring and how to become involved with mentoring programming in Ottawa.
The Ottawa Mentorship Collaborative for Internationally Trained Professionals (ITPs) led by Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization (OCISO) is a community-based collaborative framework to support mentoring initiatives in the Ottawa community.
