Engineers and Geoscientists BC

For Mentors

Who Can Become a Mentor?

A mentor is a professional registrant in good standing who has a strong understanding of their discipline and is willing to share that knowledge with current trainees, and applicants.

Why Should I Become a Mentor?

You will have a unique opportunity to impact the career of a less experienced professional, which will not only enhance your leadership and coaching skills, but also enable you to help shape the profession for future generations.

What is Involved?

As a mentor with Engineers and Geoscientists BC, you will be sharing your knowledge and experiences with a mentee throughout a suggested 1-year term. This can be done with in-person meetings, emails, phone calls, or eMeetings. It is encouraged that you invest at least 1 hour per month in the program.

All mentors are required to take a short online training session on our Competency Experience Reporting System and/or work experience requirements.

How to Get Started?

  1. Apply for the Engineers and Geoscientists BC Mentoring Program as a mentor.
  2. Once you have qualified for the program, your availability as a mentor is posted in the online mentoring program database.
  3. At that time, mentees may view your profile on the Mentor Listing and request to be matched with you. 
  4. You will be forwarded automated notifications if a potential match is identified.
  5. It is the responsibility of the mentee to make initial contact with their assigned mentor.
