The Mentoring program requires a 1‑year commitment during which time the Mentee will have access to a dedicated Mentor in the area indicated. Each Mentor-Mentee pair will define the parameters of their relationship.

To be eligible to participate in the Mentoring program, Mentees must be
  • in the final year of their post-secondary program (college or university)
  • OR enrolled in a Masters or PhD program
  • OR a recent graduate (within two years of graduation)

Relevant programs of study include geology, geography, geophysics, resource modeling, environmental studies, mine engineering, mine business development, or finance.

It is important to note that this is NOT an employment program. Mentors are not required to advocate on their Mentee’s behalf to prospective employers and will not be obliged to share industry contacts.

Applicants must be a PDAC member in good standing.
