Professional Mentorship Program

The Professional Mentorship Program will match you with a mentor in your field of work. This is someone in your profession or occupation who is well established here in Canada.

A mentor can help you in a number of ways:

  • attend networking events together and discuss trends and opportunities in your field
  • learn the "jargon" or profession-specific language you need
  • visit your mentor's workplace
  • build your professional network in Nova Scotia through introductions and connections

Ask your Employment Specialist about being referred to the Mentorship Program.

Here's how the program works:

  • you meet in public places (eg. coffee shops, libraries, Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia) to talk about your profession, the labour market, differences in workplace culture and other topics
  • you meet 2-4 times a month
  • the Mentorship Program is based on specific goals and activities
  • the Mentorship Program Coordinator provides ongoing guidance, support and suggestions
For more information please contact your Employment Specialist.
