Snapp, the Digital Mentorship Platform, Relaunches Public Pilot to Support Skilled Newcomers‍

January 16, 2024

Snapp (Skilled Newcomers and Professionals Partnership) is a pilot program developed by PeaceGeeks, a nonprofit organization dedicated to simplifying the immigration journey for Canadian refugees and newcomers through innovative digital tools. 

Following a successful closed pilot in June 2020, PeaceGeeks and Snapp is excited to announce its relaunch as a public pilot to extend its impact.

With a mission to streamline the integration of newcomers into the Canadian workplace, Snapp recognizes the multifaceted challenges faced by individuals striving to establish their careers in a new environment.

The platform facilitates meaningful connections by bringing together skilled newcomers and local professionals in British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario through personalized 1:1 video calls. These interactions provide a unique opportunity for individuals to meet, connect, and share invaluable insights about navigating their careers in Canada.

The success of this initiative has been made possible with the generous support of the Mariam Assefa Fund through World Education Services, which has played a pivotal role in funding the research and pilot phases. PeaceGeeks and Snapp extend heartfelt gratitude to the Mariam Assefa Fund for their commitment to empowering newcomers on their professional journey.

In addition, PeaceGeeks and Snapp acknowledge and express gratitude to its esteemed partners, including Immigrant Networks - Social Networking Platform, Archway Community Services, Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, Mission Community Services Society, North York Community House, Social Enterprise for Canada, South Okanagan Immigrant & Community Services (SOICS), S.U.C.C.E.S.S., The Family Education and Support Center, Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC), YMCA BC, and YWCA Metro Vancouver. Through their active involvement, these organizations will play a crucial role in mentoring newcomers on the Snapp platform and collectively contribute to a lasting impact on the lives of those seeking professional guidance in Canada.
