Help a skilled immigrant settle into professional life in Canada!

MOSAIC’s Workplace Connections is a volunteer program matching skilled immigrants with Canadian professionals in an informal mentoring relationship for 3 months. Workplace Connections helps immigrants move their careers to Canada. We create mentorships between skilled immigrants and working professionals. It is about relationships, cultural exchange and opening career paths in Canada.

We are actively seeking mentors from all professions, especially IT professionals


This is a great volunteer opportunity if you:
