Find a mentor to help you reconnect with your career in Canada.

If you are an immigrant with a professional background, TRIEC Mentoring Partnership* can help you reconnect with your career with the support of a mentor who works in your field, in Canada.


By talking to a mentor who shares your professional background and knows how the local labour market works, you can get a head start on your journey to success in Canada.

In fact, 75% of participants find a job in their professional field within one year of completing the program.


You should sign up for the program if you:

  • Have 2+ years of international experience in your professional field
  • Have lived in Canada for less than five years
  • Are unemployed or underemployed and looking to reconnect with your career

A mentor can help you:
  • Understand Canadian industry trends
  • Develop more effective job search strategies
  • Build your professional network
