Canada Bureau Chief

Job Description:

The Journal is looking to hire a bureau chief in Canada, based in Toronto, to oversee corporate, markets and news coverage for all platforms, at a time of political change and economic pain for the U.S.‘s closest ally and biggest trading partner.

The collapse in the price of oil and the rout in the mining sector have hit Canada hard, contributing to the ouster last year of a Conservative government and the election of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party. The government has promised a slew of policy changes, from tougher climate rules to a return to Canada’s traditional peacekeeping role on the world stage, but that agenda, along with Mr. Trudeau’s honeymoon with voters may be jeopardized by the sluggish economy, a tension that will generate stories in the months to come.

Many of the best Canadian stories have been and will continue to be classic corporate sagas, from the near-death experience of BlackBerry, to the ongoing struggle for survival of Bombardier Inc., and the drama now swirling around Valeant. It’s been fertile ground for enterprise stories, ranging from feuds inside some of the country’s richest business families, and the struggle of its biggest bank, RBC, with money-laundering allegations in Latin America. And of course, quirky Canada provides ample fodder for aheds, including onesabout the summer grazing habits of Newfoundland sheep, the crumbling official residence of the Prime Minister and efforts to banish the Canada Goose, a national symbol, from Ottawa
