MAPLE 2.0 Interns at Ackah Law

MAPLE 2.0 Interns at Ackah Law

Ackah Law embraces the opportunity to participate in Canada's MAPLE 2.0: a mentorship program for recent immigrants to Canada:

Mentorship in Action is a national program that brings together employers with internationally educated professionals (IEP’s) through mentorship placements. It creates employment opportunities for new immigrants and helps employers enhance their intercultural understanding.

We work from an employer’s perspective by identifying the needs of employers in breaking down the barriers to hiring recent immigrants.

MAPLE 2.0 helps recent immigrants with training and skills:

  • gain valuable supervised work experience in their field
  • learn Canadian office culture and practices
  • build professional references
  • develop a network of contacts
  • improve their English skills

Immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah, manager and founding lawyer of Ackah Business Immigration Law, knows firsthand the valuable skills immigrants bring to Canada's workforce, and welcomes programs like MAPLE 2.0 that reinforce Canadian multiculturalism and diversity while building our economy:

Ackah Law recently hired a law intern through MAPLE 2.o:
After attending law school in Nigeria and practicing law in Nigeria and Singapore, she moved to Canada and began volunteering in several nonprofits, including Calgary Immigrant Women's Association (CIWA). As a volunteer at the CIWA legal clinic, she developed a deep interest in immigration law as a result of the complex issues associated with immigration law matters, and joined the MAPLE 2.0, which placed her as a Mentee in Ackah Business Immigration Law (Ackah Law) for three months. During her mentorship placement program at Ackah Law, she was further exposed to more complex immigration law matters, which inspired her to enter the practice of immigration law to support clients to achieve their desired individual and organizational goals.

After her successful internship through MAPLE, we offered our Mentee a position as an Articling Student at Ackah Law. When she completes her Articling term, she will be qualified to practice law in Canada.

Immigrants as Innovators: Boosting Canada's Global Competiveness:

"The Conference Board of Canada puts the annual national cost of underutilizing immigrant skills between $4.1 & $5.9 billion."

MAPLE 2.0 is fully funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada; all recruitment, placement and training services are offered at no cost to employers. Contact MAPLE 2.0 to learn more about becoming an employer here.
