The only national refugee mentorship program.

Program Overview

Welcome Talent Canada, our new initiative in collaboration with LinkedIn, provides newcomers with the tools and resources they need to help them jump start their professional careers in Canada and find meaningful employment opportunities.

The program is centered around newcomer job-seekers in Toronto and Vancouver with advanced English or French skills.

The Welcome Talent Canada Initiative has two main components:

  • First, program participants are trained by Jumpstart on how to leverage LinkedIn’s resources to find employment. This includes growing their network, developing new skills, creating a strong professional identity, and researching the Canadian job market.

  • Second, newcomers are matched to a LinkedIn member who will provide mentorship and help them with their entry into the Canadian job market.

All program participants and mentors will receive ongoing support from Jumpstart throughout the process to ensure successful experiences for both job-seekers and mentors.
