International & New-to-Canada Student Buddy Program Sign-Up

The International Education Centre is bringing back the International & New-to-Canada Student Buddy Program! In this program, incoming international students, permanent residents, new immigrants or exchange students will be paired with an upper year domestic or international mentor from around the world, as well as other incoming students. This group will serve as a support system for incoming students as they start their new journey in Mississauga, providing them with advice on thriving at UTM!

During the summer, upper year mentors and incoming students will be paired up before the start of school in September so you have time to connect with each other before classes begin.

Arriving in January? Not to worry. Our applications will re-open in November.

If you are an upper-year international or domestic student and want to become a mentor, please fill out the form below. Registration closes August 2nd, 2019. There are limited spots, and you will be notified if you are accepted into the program.
