Needs

We are here to answer questions and in a very practical way help you navigate your new life in Canada.

Career Mentorship Pilot Program

You have expressed that finding a job here in Canada is one of the biggest needs international students have right now! We created this program to hopefully help you thrive in the Canadian job hunt and workplace.

This program pairs you with a working professional from your industry to run through three 1 hour sessions of content about the Canadian workplace and your industry. Ask your questions directly to someone who has experience working in your field!

This pilot program is available for students at Brock University.

If you are not selected for this round of our pilot program, don’t worry! We will launch with increased numbers in the near future!
