Mentorship Program

What is the Mentorship Program?

As one of our community connections initiatives, Niagara Workforce Planning Board maintains its Mentorship Program for newcomers to Canada.

Our program pairs internationally trained professionals (ITPs) with established local professionals in the newcomer's field of expertise for a mentoring program designed to introduce them to their industry in Niagara, and Canadian workplace culture.
