CCFA Member Mentorship Plan

Spring 2015

As the saying goes, “The whole year’s plan starts with spring.” After saying goodbye to the cold winter, now it is the best time for us to get started to advance our career to the next level. The Canadian-Chinese Financial Association (CCFA) is now pleased to announce a mentorship program to help CCFA members to share, improve, and advance their career by pairing mentee with mentor on a one-on-one basis.

To make this program successful and benefit our members, we already prepared the program elaborately and found ten strong mentors all with manager level and up (see the mentor list down below). Now all we need is you—a strong and eager candidate, to make the CCFA Mentorship program a complete success

If you are interested, please read the following details.


Mentee requirements: CCFA member with 3+ years of industrial experience.


Mentee Places: 10. (Mentor and mentee are paired on a one-on-one basis)


Pairing process: We expect a large number of mentee applicants. So far about eight applied. Potential mentees are firstly prescreened by CCFA based on their application materials. Then the program will facilitate the mentors to select mentees.



Application end: From now to May 15th, 2015. (Extended due to popular demand)
