Governance (Québec)

Réseau Mentorat is led by a national council and regional councils, in collaboration with local representatives from various regions of Quebec. We favour an inclusive approach to all stakeholders impacted by entrepreneurship. Regional mentorship councils are made up of mentors and a representative of the Fondation de l'entrepreneurship (FDE), along with, in some cases, representatives of public- or private-sector organizations. The regional councils themselves are composed of representatives of local points of service and mentorship cells.

The national council has formed several subcommittees to explore various operational and developmental aspects of Réseau Mentorat. These subcommittees comprise a delegated official who sits on the national council, as well as mentors, coordinators and a team member of the FDE.

In 2017–2018, the Mentoring Committee was set up to ensure Réseau Mentorat was represented in the governance of the Fondation de l’entrepreneurship. Made up of four members from the national council, ideally two mentors and two leaders of partner organizations serving on the Foundation’s Board of Directors. The purpose of the Mentoring Committee is to advise the Foundation, its Board of Directors and its administration on issues of importance to Réseau Mentorat, work with the team to define strategic priorities, reach out to mentors and partner organizations, and contribute to the growth of the mentoring market.
