The Niagara Immigrant Connections Initiative recognizes that immigrants and newcomers to Canada have the talent and skills to enrich our community. What these individuals often lack is something that many Canadian professionals take for granted: a network of fellow professionals in their field of expertise. Our mentorship program pairs established local professionals with internationally trained professionals, who are looking to build their career and expand their knowledge.
Our approach to mentorship focuses on the individual goals of both mentors and participants. We pair both individuals based on matching career paths and educational backgrounds. This allows our mentors to gain global insights on their industry, while participants are able to understand the local opportunities in their field.
If you are a professional who is looking to offer your support or insight, or a newcomer looking energize their career, we have the resources to support you. Additional information on becoming a mentor or participating in our program is available on our website.
We are collecting data to better understand who is looking for work and what kind of opportunities jobseekers are searching for. This data is completely anonymous and non-personally identifiable.
