About ITP Mentorship “Bridging Program”

The ITP mentorship program, “From Volunteerism to employment”, is an on-the-job bridging mentorship program offered by Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre (PQCHC) that pairs Internationally-Trained Professionals with staff from different organizations, Community Health Resource Centres (CHRC’s) across Ottawa- Canada and other community-based organizations in the city, according to their education, skills and work experience for an unpaid three-month placement.

Placements are flexible, but we do require a commitment of 12 hours per week plus 2 hours for bi-weekly workshops.

Operating for over seven years now, the program has supported over 300 internationally-trained professionals.  65% of the participants who completed the program have gained employment related to their field of expertise. We do offer English and bilingual placements although training and communications are available only in English.
