Mentorship Program Inventory

Ottawa Employment Hub, your Local Employment Planning Council (LEPC), in consultation with community partners, has developed this inventory of Ottawa mentorship programs, to assist service providers in connecting job seekers and students to mentorship opportunities.

This information is also available publicly under Focus on Learning – Finding a Coach or Mentor to allow parents, job seekers and students to be able to access the information directly when exploring the resource portal.

Employers can also access the inventory on the OttawaStaffingToolkit employer resource portal to explore opportunities to engage with the community through mentorship.
