Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations

between Korea and Canada

From the Ambassador's Desk

On July 10th, the Embassy hosted a very special "Speakers Series", our fifth event since the memorable commencement in March 2013.

The theme of our lecture, "Artic Kaleidoscope… The People, Wildlife, and Ever-Changing Landscape", was both timely and relevant in light of Canada's assumption of the chairmanship of the Arctic Council and Korea's attainment of permanent observer status.

To launch the beginning of this new and exciting area of cooperation between our two countries, we were honoured to have the highly accomplished and award-winning photographer, Michelle Valberg, here with us to share her unique thoughts, images, and stories about Canada's remarkable Arctic frontier.

Over 120 participants got the rare opportunity to envision, discover, and study the Arctic, without having to board a plane or withstand its freezing temperatures. Michelle's amazing photographs broadened our knowledge and awareness of the Arctic's landscape, wildlife, and people, and awakened the explorer in all of us. Her professional and captivating presentation was truly inspiring and I encourage everyone to view her work, witness the beauty and diversity of Canada.

I wish Canada great success during its chairmanship and reaffirm Korea's deep commitment to achieving the key goals of the Arctic Council.

2013 Meeting of Consuls-General of the ROK Takes



The First Meeting of Consuls-General since the launch of the Park Geun-hye government took place from July 8 to 11. A total of 53 consuls-general and heads of vice-consulates and consular agencies, who have jurisdiction over each area around the world, discussed and shared their initiatives and ideas to open an "era of happiness of the people" abroad.

The Consulate-General is one of the agencies most closely related to the "happiness of the people." While the Embassy focuses on the big picture of a relationship between two countries, the Consulate-General has the responsibility of protecting the safety and rights of overseas Koreans. In addition, the Consulate-General contributes to "economic revival" by supporting ROK companies' creative activities and participates in "cultural renaissance" by sharing Korean culture with people across the world.
