Welcome Talent Canada provides newly settled refugees with the tools and resources they need to help them jump start their professional careers in Canada and find meaningful employment opportunities.
The program is centered around refugee job-seekers in Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary with advanced English or French skills.
How Welcome Talent Canada is Different
The only national mentorship program for refugees in Canada
The program is exclusively tailored for newly settled refugees, to support them in overcoming the unique barriers they face
Refugees and Canadian professionals are carefully hand-matched to ensure there is great fit between their professional backgrounds
Mentors and mentees both receive intake interviews prior to being matched to ensure expectations and commitments are clear
We provide ongoing support, from facilitating the first meeting to ongoing monthly check-ins, to ensure a rewarding mentorship experience for both parties
Our mentorship action plan goes beyond mentor coaching—it places emphasis on expanding professional networks, given the importance of networks in securing employment
