2016 EU-Canada Young Journalist Fellowship

01/11/2016 - 00:00

Three young Canadian journalists had recently the opportunity to tour EU institutions in Brussels. Exceptionally this year, they also attended a Plenary Session at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France. Prior to the study tour, the winners were recognized at an awards ceremony jointly organized with the Honourable Geoff Regan, Speaker of the House of Commons, in early October in Ottawa.

In Brussels, the young journalists participated at the European Commission’s Midday Press Briefing and had topic specific meetings with experts at the European External Action Service as well as at the European Council. The study tour also included several occasions to network with European journalists and media professionals. The week-long study tour took place between 22-29 October 2016 and aims to give young Canadian journalists a chance to advance their career goals and create life-long bonds with Europeans.

Next edition will be launched in March 2017.
