Every Sikh should have access to resources and opportunities that will help ensure their professional success. We aim to contribute to the growth of the community’s youth and develop Panth-focused professionals who abide by the teachings of compassion, justice, dasvand, and honest living.
Sikhia Mentor Database
An online platform which connects students with mentors across Ontario. Searchable by career and location, the database strives to eliminate barriers to success and enables Sikhs to quickly access guidance for whichever profession they choose to pursue.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT RETREAT
Sikhia is Canada’s only career-development retreat for Sikh youth between the ages of 17 and 26.
The retreat strives to equip Sikh youth with the tools and resources they need to become outstanding students, employees, business owners, and community members. By attending Sikhia, you will:
Expand your network – join a team that will be invested in your success for years to come
Visit your future workplace – get hands on experience in your field of interest
Invest in your future – prepare in advance for the decisions that will define your future
Give back – get acquainted with your responsibilities to the community
JOIN THE NETWORK
We offer a variety of opportunities for students and professionals to give back to their community. To get involved, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a Sikh professional, we are always looking to expand the Sikhia Mentor Database to reflect a more diverse array of careers and educational backgrounds. Likewise, our annual retreat is home to networking dinners and career development workshops which are dependent on professionals sharing their expertise.
If you are a student, expand your network by helping organize our Sikhia initiatives (including our talks, retreat, and mentor database). As a volunteer, you will work with a team to develop and implement ideas that empower others of your generation and propel them to new heights.
