"Canada in a Book" Program for Schools

The Canadian Resource Centre is pleased to launch a new program "Canada in a Book", which will provide an exciting opportunity for Korean middle and high school students to learn about Canada’s priorities, with a particular focus on “equality”.

Equality, including gender equality, the empowerment of women and girls, and the promotion and protection of human rights are key Canadian priorities, both in Canada and in the world. The Canadian Embassy to Korea is committed to advance these values throughout all our initiatives.

The "Canada in a Book" program will provide a valuable opportunity for Korean students to learn about the importance of equality by exploring human rights issues through the lenses of Canadian authors. The program is conducted in Korean on the last Thursday of the month, led by the Canadian Resource Centre Coordinator who is a certified librarian.
