ALLIES Mentoring Conference underway in Calgary

The 2011 ALLIES Mentoring Conference, which is showcasing innovative practices on mentoring from immigrant employment councils, employers and service delivery agencies from over 15 cities across Canada, is currently underway in Calgary.
Included in the roster of speakers is Calgary Mayor, Naheed Nenshi; Maytree President Ratna Omidvar; and the Foundation’s own Tim Brodhead and Stephen Huddart.
Mentoring is fast becoming one of the most popular ways to connect skilled immigrants with established Canadian professionals in the same or related occupation. And it works – many skilled immigrants have found employment using the skills and connections gained through the mentoring relationship.
