Mentor Stories

Mentors say they gain as much as they give by mentoring skilled immigrants.

“Mentoring provides real professional development,” says Joe Ferreyro, Associate Manager, Sun Life Financial. “You learn about other cultures and get to interact with many types of people. I do a lot of mentoring on the job, so I can apply what I learn to my daily activities of coaching new hires. More importantly, I am paying it forward because I remember what it was like when I immigrated.”

Mentors reached their 10th partnership in 2016
