Brought to you by Massey College, Munk School of Global Affairs, and the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History at the University of Toronto 

On Thursday, June 11th 2015 at the Munk School of Global Affairs, we will be hosting a one-day conference to critically examine various ways for strengthening bilateral relationship between Canada and South Korea, focusing on trade, defence, culture, education and immigration.
