The programme pairs skilled immigrants with mentors who are professionals in their field. Mentors gain greater cultural awareness and leadership skills while supporting skilled immigrants in their job search, which is delivered through a four-month partnership.
Since 2004, over 50 employers have become involved in the programme.
12,000 matches have been made between skilled immigrants and established Canadian professionals.
75% of mentees found employment in their occupation or related field within 12 months of program completion.
Successful mentees find employment faster than the average immigrant does; the job they find is also more stable and closer to their field.
