OCISO is an amazing organization that offers a number of different programs to immigrants and refugees to support them in their journey to make Canada their home.

The organization is driven by dedicated and passionate employees, generous and energetic volunteers and committed community partners and donors. I feel very lucky to have been placed with OCISO.

I hope to get more involved with the Friends of the Family program. It is a very special program that enriches the lives of everyone involved.

Demand for volunteer groups (groups of friends or a family) is very high so if you are Ottawa-based and want to get to know your city better, make new friends, stay active and learn about different cultures you should consider volunteering with Friends of the Family.

I would like to take this time to thank you sincerely. You have helped me and if am moving forward it's because of the motivation that you added to me especially reminding me and ensuring me that I have all it costs to make it to a better life. I would write pages to express how much you have contributed to this achievement from the very first day I met you. I hope to see you again in the near future. You deserve more than a "Thank you" . I believe blessings from God will satisfy you with peace of mind and joy as you keep giving hope to the hopeless and raising lives. Thanks for opening another door for me through OCISO Internship.

I would like to thank you and the rest of the team at the OCISO Career Mentoring Program for all the
support. Every interaction with the program - with staff members, as well as with my mentor - was a learning experience that took me closer to a job opportunity. The match-making process was awesome: it was very fast (from intake session to meeting my mentor in less than a week), and Mr. Burwell's skills as a mentor are extraordinary. As a truly satisfied client, I will be more than glad to openly recommend the Program to your target audience.

I had a wonderful and enriching experience with the mentor I was assigned. Not only my mentor provided me with strategic ideas to enhance my job hunt, but she also dedicated an incredible amount of time from her busy agenda to meet me personally and to reply every single communication we established over email. I finally felt there was someone who could speak about my sector and support me in every single step of my efforts to attain a job that I really wanted, not just any job. I also learned from my mentor to be patient but at the same time to not give up on my dream job and focus on making it happen. I enjoyed sharing experiences with my mentor; she wasn't only interested in assisting with her insights, but also on listening to my work perspectives while being incredibly friendly and sincere. This is priceless when you are jobless and need to navigate through a lot of situations. This program has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and I can't thank enough OCISO and my mentor for this amazing opportunity, I finally got one of the jobs I have been dreaming of.
