TRIEC Mentoring partnership Enables skilled recent immigrants to integrate into the Canadian labour market through mentorship
TMP Impact Story | Siva
Siva had big plans when she arrived to Canada from Malaysia in 2009. Determined to work in financial services, she began to do as much as she could to understand the Canadian financial sector. With the financial skills and experience she gained back home, she knew she could be a great fit for a job in Canada, but needed help navigating the Canadian workforce culture—that’s when she found a mentor through TRIEC’s Mentoring Partnership program.
Today Siva works with TD Bank in the Real Estate Secured Lending group, and is working towards attaining her Certified Credit Professional (CPP) qualification. “Because I knew I would be able to transfer my skills from back home, my mentor helped me achieve my objective, “ Siva says. “Now that I’m established in my career, I decided to give back to the community,” and support newcomers as a mentor for the Mentoring Partnership.
