WSJ seeking Canada bureau chief

October 7, 2013

Posted by Chris Roush

The Wall Street Journal seeks a Canada bureau chief to guide coverage of a country and an economy that has punched above its weight through the global economic crisis but is at a critical juncture.

Canadian pension funds and banks are on acquisition binges and Canada has become a staging ground for the reemergence of North America as an energy superpower and the nascent commercial opening of the Arctic. But the property market faces a potentially popping bubble, the mining sector has been laid low by the end of the commodities boom, and the one-time tech national champion, BlackBerry, is in a struggle for survival.

The Toronto-based bureau chief will drive reporters based in Toronto, Ottawa and Calgary in breaking news on these and many other subjects and in conceptualizing big-picture features for all sections of The Journal. The storytelling spans the world’s second-largest country by land mass. Interested candidates should be veteran reporters or editors, with experience managing or working with a large team of reporters. Proficiency in French, Canada’s second official language, is a plus.
