Volunteer of the Month - December 2015

Ekaterina Borshevetskaya is Immigrant Services Calgary’s Volunteer of the Month!

Volun Dec 2015

 

Ekaterina was born in Russia and raised in Kazakhstan before she moved to Canada in 2009. She is a Health and Safety professional with over 12 years of international experience in the oil and gas industry.

“I started volunteering because it was great opportunity to give back to my community and help newcomers find their way to be successful in their professional career. When I arrived to Calgary in 2009, I was very lucky to participate in ELT program at CCIS. This program helped me to adapt in Canada, improve my language skills and learn about professional networking.”

Ekaterina joined ISC to help as a mentor with the Integrated Mentorship Program (IMP) and contributed over 70 hours only within the last couple of months. The IMP is a mentorship program offered by Immigrant Services Calgary that seeks to connect professionally qualified skilled Immigrants with established Canadian professionals in their respective fields of expertise and to empower them with the skills and knowledge necessary to find gainful employment in their fields.

 

“I know what the newcomers can face in Canada; I’ve been in these shoes before and I am ready to share my experience.”

 

Congratulations Ekaterina!
