ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP
Canadian Mentoring Partnership (CMP) is a new coalition of organizations that provide youth mentoring. Our goal is to build sector capacity to expand access to mentoring across Canada. Our work is focused in four areas: research, technology, public education and development of regional networks.
CMP was launched by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada, the Alberta Mentoring Partnership and the Ontario Mentoring Coalition. We are actively seeking to engage organizations from across Canada to work with us and promote the mentoring movement.
Working together, we will build sector capacity to empower every young person to fulfil their potential.
Canadian Mentoring Partnership is the result of decades of work by youth-serving organizations, leaders and funding partners which culminated in November 2016 at the Canadian Mentoring Leadership Summit held in Banff, Alberta. During this summit, the foundation was laid for the development of a Canadian Mentoring Partnership. CMP was launched in 2019 with funding from Employment and Social Development Canada, and BMO Financial Group.
