The goal of the Oncology Nursing e-Mentorship Program is to promote the optimal development and implementation of generalist, specialized, and advanced practice nurses in Ontario through effective career planning and mentorship.

The program builds on a successful Mentorship Program that was launched for advanced practice nurses (APNs) in 2007 by the Ontario Oncology APN Community of Practice, Cancer Care Ontario, and the School of Nursing at McMaster University. With the support of the de Souza Institute, the program has expanded to include all Ontario nurses.. This includes nurses involved in a variety of cancer related and non-cancer related specialties.

As of April 2013, the eMentorship program officially transitioned to the de Souza Institute in Toronto.  This move ensures the long-term sustainability of the program and opportunities for national expansion. For the most part, this transition involved the physical relocation of the program from Hamilton to Toronto and reorganization to a single management structure. Free access to program resources including the website, webinars, Mentorship Community and Matching System, and career development support has continued. Program marketing and use of social media channels were integrated with those for the de Souza Institute. Therefore current members of the eMentorship Program also have increased access to the latest news, events and upcoming workshop schedule offered by the de Souza Institute.
