2016 National Mentorship Program! 

About the Program

The National Mentorship Program is rooted in the success of the 2008 National Young Leaders Mentorship pilot and the 2009 Canadian Business Owner Strategy (CBOS) mentorship pilot.  Mentors and mentees of both programs were unanimous in their recommendation that Canadian Central invite wider participation by offering a national mentorship program. Canadian Central acted by launching the first National Mentorship Program in 2010.
