CIPMM Procurement and Materiel Management Mentorship Program

The application process is now closed for the 2018 CIPMM mentorship program. But we would like to encourage you to take advantage of the speed mentoring at the 2018 National Workshop.
Registration will open soon for this opportunity!

Participation to the program is FREE

CIPMM, in partnership with the Government of Canada, would like to offer you an exciting opportunity to participate in its free inaugural Mentorship Program. The program is positioned to align with the development of key competencies and skills required in the procurement and materiel management professions, and to effectively help participants in their journey toward forwarding their careers and having life changing experiences. It is designed to help develop skills, to provide access to the information and resources, and to support your needs to realize your professional and career goals, including leadership opportunities.

Don’t Miss Out! The procurement and materiel management fields are exciting and rapidly expanding activites within the Government of Canada. This is a wonderful opportunity for all levels from the newly minted employees to executives alike. Help foster a sense of community within the Government of Canada and consider joining the Mentorship Program this fall!

How does it work? The CIPMM Mentorship Program is a 7 month-long program (November 2017 – May 2018) in which a diverse range of leaders share their experience with mentees. Mentors meet on a regular basis with four to five mentees for meetings and group discussions.

Spaces are limited.


Would you like to have an opportunity to pass on your knowledge to others? Do you want to help support a learning culture in the workplace? Mentors will provide an invaluable contribution to sustaining an effective workforce, share knowledge and experience, and help nourish a learning culture in the workplace.

Anyone at the supervisor level and above, who works (or has recently worked) in the procurement and materiel management community and who feels they may have some experience and knowledge to offer to junior procurement and materiel management employees, is eligible to become a Mentor.
