ICCC Mentoring Program 2014


The Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the launch of the 5th round of its mentoring program.

The program intends to help newcomers settle into the Canadian society better and faster by helping internationally trained Indo-Canadian newcomers connect with successful professionals to help them build useful networks, familiarize them with the Canadian work culture and assist them in job search. The preceding four sessions have met their objectives.

We are actively seeking Mentors and Mentees for this year’s Mentoring Program. The mentors for the program will be carefully chosen from the vast pool of professional talent available within ICCC’s membership to help the mentees in their professional networking and job search strategies.

Objectives of the program

  • Help skilled newcomers by matching them with a mentor with a similar background or in their desired areas of professional interest
  • Assist them with developing their professional networks and making educated career decisions
  • Increase their understanding of Canadian workplace culture and the reality of transferring professional designations
