Immigrating to a new country is not an easy feat and we believe mentorship helps pave a smoother path to an unknown country. Mentors are vital in creating an ongoing relationship of learning, dialogue and support. This form of experiential learning can be very powerful and inspirational to newcomers, who are in the process of mapping out potential pathways for their new life.
At Community Tree, we envision mentorship for newcomers to be most effective through a two prong approach. We believe it is imperative to have One Professional Mentor, an industry professional who is able to guide you and provide insight to a career path of your liking and One Local Mentor, a member of your local neighbourhood and community who is able to share life lessons and resources to provide support in your transition.
Through the collaborative nature of both mentors, we believe that powerful connections are created, enabling the full professional and personal development of all newcomers to the country.
From group mentorship for all newcomers to one-to-one career mentorship for students and adults entering or reentering skilled or professional careers, our mentorship programs will help you achieve your goals while building lifelong relationships.

Our inaugural event, “Taste of Community”, was held on January 26th at Yaletown Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Center. The event provided the opportunity for newcomers to socialize with local Vancouverites while enjoying dishes from local businesses. Keynote speakers included dietician and influencer, Devika Sharma, who is the founder of One More Bite, a Vancouver based nutrition consulting company. Also, Winnie Furber from AIP Services delivered a workshop on how to search for dream job in Canada. A key highlight of the event was the culinary demonstration by a reputable local chef, Ramin Tahouri. The guests were able to enjoy delightful plant-based dishes prepared by Chef Ramin.
The event hosted 50 guests including the speakers, and was featured on Daily Hive and Aaj Magazine.
The success of the event was a testament of the dedication of the Community Tree team as they planned and organized the event within less than 2 months without any grants and donations.
