The Town of Hawkesbury hosted special visitors on Thursday, May 24, 2018. Representatives of the Republic of Korea, Minister-Counsellor and Consul General Kim Janghoi and First Secretary Kim Jong Sup spent a day with Mayor Jeanne Charlebois visiting French-language schools and Le Chenail Cultural Centre for a day of learning and cultural exchange.
Korea and Canada have had a long history of positive diplomatic relations, dating back to 1963. In 2014, a Strategic Partnership was established, aimed at bolstering cooperation in areas such as energy, natural resources and technology.
In 2015, the Korea-Canada Free Trade Agreement entered into force and today, in 2018, the two countries celebrate 55 years of diplomatic relations.
