The EP Mentorship Program

All great leaders at one point had mentors, and in turn, mentored others. Trying to make great strides in your career is much easier when you work with someone who has experience travelling on that same path.

Whether you are just starting out and need guidance, or you are a seasoned professional, and wish to help others follow in your footsteps, this mentoring program is worth your time.

The Mentorship Program is exclusive to certified Environmental Professional (EP) members that have obtained their professional designation through ECO Canada.

Our senior EP leaders act as mentors to our Environmental Professional in-training (EPt) members that qualify as mentees.
