OCISO is a great settlement organization for newcomers. I accessed their mentorship program. It matched me with a seasoned federal civil servant who had years of hands on experience in career counselling and development. The mentorship program helped me to develop my career planning in Canada and setting up short and long term goals. OCISO’s Mentorship Facilitator, Tonya Pomerantz, was very helpful, and she set me up very efficiently with the mentor. She had also followed up throughout the mentorship program to benefit from it. It was a great learning experience.
