FSWO's Paired Mentoring Program is designed to connect firefighters (FSWO members in good standing) with women who are beginning the recruitment process, including those enrolled in Pre-Service Firefighter Education and Training programs at Ontario colleges. The program will expand to include partnership of Station Officers and Chief Officers with those who are considering, or participating in, the corresponding promotional opportunities.


The goal of the FSWO Mentoring program is to offer the opportunity to pair mentors and mentees who may have similar backgrounds or have a desire to achieve similar objectives. Each individual will have their own unique goals for their involvement. This program reflects the mandate of FSWO, as it has been designed to Educate, Encourage, and Empower women to gain the knowledge and confidence to become great Firefighters and Fire Service Leaders.
