Mentorship Program - CPHR NL


The Mentorship Program is a CPHR NL member’s only benefit. Its purpose is to match HR mentees with mentors with a single purpose in mind–supporting their professional development and career growth in a meaningful way. It is not a job search program.

The Mentorship Program length is 7 months, with a minimum expectation and requirement of meeting once per month for one hour in length. This structured mentorship relationship will qualify for 1 CPD point per hour, to a maximum of 25 CPD hours over a three-year period.

Timelines and Intakes

The Mentorship program will open up to all registered members of CPHR NL on March 1st. Mentors and Mentees will then have until March 31st to submit their respective applications. The Mentorship Committee will then begin the process of reviewing and matching all applications, letting the matches know before April 15th. The program will then run for seven months from May until October.
