Toronto Korean-Language Newspapers

This project contains two significant Toronto Korean-language newspapers: The Minjoong Shinmoon (Jan. 1982; Jan. 1989 - Mar. 1993) and The New Korea Times (May 1982 - May 2003). The collection features approximately 7,420 pages.

To Korean immigrants in Canada, the following two newspapers are crucial sources of information on the evolution of Korean politics in both North and South Korea. They are also important research tools in the study of Toronto's Korean immigrant community. Both papers were donated on an ongoing basis to the East Asian Library by the publishers. 

This digitization project of these two newspapers is the first ever undertaken by the Cheng Yu Tung East Asian Library.
