Recruiting new e-Reporters for ‘Korea-Canada Blog’Recruiting new e-Reporters for ‘Korea-Canada Blog’

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations between Korea-Canada in 2013, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to Canada launched the ‘Korea-Canada 50th Anniversary Blog’ (korcan50years.com). Through the blog, the e-Reporters shared their stories of Korea-Canada friendship, Korean culture, arts, education, economy and lifestyle, which ultimately reached out to 171 countries and 110,000 people around the globe.

In responding to the great popularity of the blog, the Embassy has decided to continue the blog indefinitely and will re-launch the blog as the ‘Korea-Canada Blog’ with a promise to return with even more informative and entertaining stories.

To that end, the Embassy is recruiting new volunteer e-Reporters who have a passion for Korea-Canada relations and are committed to contributing stories to our blog on a regular basis. We welcome stories involving Korea and Canada from diverse perspectives including your own experiences of Korea and Korean culture.

If you are passionate about Korea and are dedicated to reaching out to the online community with your writing, we would like to invite you to join the ‘Korea-Canada Blog’!

Thank you and we look forward to your applications!
