The Mentoring Link


Linking Newcomers with Experienced Canadian Professionals


The AXIS Mentoring Link Program is built on the concept of helping newcomers gain insight into the Canadian labour market and learninig about practical ways to take more responsibility for the effective management of their career goals. The program also enriches the professional life of each mentor with developing his or her communication and leadership skills while gaining personal satisfaction through doing something worthwhile. If maximized effectively, both parties will benefit from the experience.

Services Intro


What is an AXIS Mentor? 


An AXIS Mentor is a Canadian professional/trades person who has successfully established his/her career in their field of expertise and is dedicated to sharing his/her knowledge with others. 


Mentors must be willing to offer both guidance and expertise on the Canadian labour market and on the specific occupation within their industry, which will ultimately lead to the successful integration of newcomers into the local labour market. 



"The mentoring relationship is exactly that - a relationship. It requires commitment, reciprocity, open communication and trust."
