CYBF Newcomer Mentoring Guide


The Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) received a three-year grant in 2009 to support and expand its Newcomer Entrepreneur Program in Toronto, Halifax, Montréal and Vancouver. The CYBF Newcomer Entrepreneur Program provides specialized resources and support to young entrepreneurs who are new to Canada. CYBF is a national charity dedicated to championing tomorrow’s entrepreneurial nation-builders.

Newcomer Mentoring Guide (English and French)


The Newcomer Mentoring Guide was created for Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) mentors who will be working with newcomer entrepreneurs who have received start-up financing from the CYBF. It is intended to supplement the materials and tools provided by the Ment2B™ online program. The goal of this guide is to help mentors better understand how their mentoring approach can be tailored to meet some of the distinct needs facing a young newcomer entrepreneur. The CYBF’s Business Resource Centre also provides other valuable resources for newcomers and their mentors that the general public can use.
