The Mentoring Partnership

Employment and economic development are key standards of well-being. Income security and labour market conditions have a direct impact on individual and family success.

TNO partnered with TRIEC Mentoring Partnership for The Mentoring Partnership which matches internationally trained professionals with established mentors from similar professional backgrounds for a period of 18 hours over 3 months. Reports have shown that internationally trained professionals greatly benefit from professional mentoring: On average, unemployment decreased from 73% at the time of mentoring to 19% twelve months later. Full-time earnings increased from $36,905 to $59,944, an improvement of 62%.

Do you want to share your professional knowledge and help someone change their life? Register as a mentor with TRIEC Mentoring Partnership and help a recent immigrant to Canada reconnect with their profession. 

Why mentor?

  • It’s a chance give back to your professional community
  • You develop your own coaching skills while you help others succeed
  • As a mentor, you build connections and grow your network
  • Mentoring is a flexible time commitment of just 18 hours over three months

I volunteered as a mentor because I was grateful that the City of Toronto employed me in my profession soon after I arrived in Canada. I wanted to be part of this group that conveyed a message of hope to those immigrants who came to Canada like me.
