- I welcome you to the website of the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Vancouver.
The Consulate has jurisdiction over Western Canada, which includes British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon and the Northwest Territories. These provinces and territories are rich in natural gas, oil, products of mining, and forestry products. These provinces play a pivotal role in expanding and enriching the relationship between Korea and Canada as they serve as the gateway to the Asia-Pacific.
Western Canada is home to over hundred thousand Korean Canadians and Korean residents and is one of Korean’s most popular traveling destinations with approximately hundred thousand Koreans visiting annually. The Consulate is committed to further expanding the rights and interests of Korean Canadians and ensuring safety and protection of all Koreans under the Consulate’s jurisdiction.
In light of this, as the Consul General, I will make every effort to strengthen the relationship between Korea and Western Canada in all areas – trade, business, culture, education, sports, etc. Moreover, I will encourage the development of Korean-Canadian communities, as well as protect Korean residents and visitors in Western Canada. Through our ongoing support of Korean businesses in Western Canada, I expect that our cooperation with these regions will continue to increase and prosper.
Consul General Byung-won Chung
