Be a Mentor. Make a Difference. We're bringing together adult newcomers with established community members in Hamilton.

The Newcomer Mentoring program brings internationally-trained professionals together with established professionals in the Hamilton area for a series of meetings to discuss their professional experiences. These strategic mentoring matches allow newcomer mentees to learn about Canadian workplace culture, make critical network connections, and learn how to increase their marketability by leveraging their skills and previous international experience.
By the end of the mentoring journey, newcomer mentees have developed a more relevant and strategic career plan. On the other hand, mentors have developed cross-cultural awareness, communication and sensitivity, knowledge of best international business practices and enhanced leadership skills.
For more information how to join the Newcomer Mentoring Program, as a mentee or a mentor, please contact Shondra Costie at or call: 905-526-8452 X 3407
