Mentoring, at its core, guarantees people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity.

CFN Multicultural Peer Mentorship for Professionals  is a 4-month program that matches Mentors working as professionals in their industry in Canada with Mentees who are professionals striving to find employment in their fields. It allows for newcomers to learn from the stories and experiences of successful immigrant professionals, while improving their knowledge, skills and understanding of the Canadian workplace culture and the environment. Additionally, it helps establish a wider peer support network within and outside one's culture. Funding for the program comes from United Way of Calgary and Area and City of Calgary Family and Community Support Services.
