In 2024 TRIEC Mentoring Partnership is celebrating a significant milestone – the 20th anniversary of our program. Over these two decades, our journey has been marked by growth, resilience, and most importantly, the profound impact the program has had on the lives of newcomers to Canada. At the heart of this journey lie our invaluable community partners, who have played a pivotal role in this remarkable journey.    

Community partners are the backbone of our program, their unwavering support and dedication are instrumental in ensuring the smooth functioning of our program, ultimately contributing to the success stories of both our mentees and mentors alike. 

This milestone is also a testament to the hard work of all our mentoring coaches. They work tirelessly with mentees and act as the main point of contact for both mentees and mentors, answering questions, troubleshooting, and offering support and guidance, as needed. 

The impact of our community partners cannot be overstated. Through their collaboration and support, they have helped us create a nurturing environment where mentorship thrives, empowering newcomers to achieve their professional goals and realize their full potential.
