About the Community of Practice

What is a Community of Practice?

Mentor Canada convenes and facilitates the only National Community of Practice on Mentoring in Canada. This unique environment engages a community of mentoring professionals with one common goal: supporting each other and young people through impactful mentoring opportunities. The Community of Practice offers highly focused discussions, critical insights from subject matter experts (researchers and practitioners), and helpful evidence-based mentoring resources. The Community of Practice will strengthen the mentoring ecosystem in Canada, build networks, provide a forum for the latest mentoring evidence and insights, and provide access to exclusive content. 

If you are invested and interested in mentoring, you can join this community! The community is open to a diverse group of professionals who want to deepen their knowledge and sharpen their skills.
