Japanese Canadian History SeminarPart 2

The <145 Years of Japanese Canadian Society> seminar (10 sessions) organized by JNIC (Japanese New Immigrants Committee), which began in September 2022, took a year to successfully complete. The results far exceeded our expectations, inviting us to explore family and local history, following in the footsteps of our predecessors who came and went between Canada and Japan. The JNIC has decided to launch a new “Japanese Canadian History seminar Part 2” as a continuation of the first series, which will delve more deeply into individual topics and people. Each time, we will invite a guest speaker to share his or her personal research.

Please join us. Everyone is welcome to attend free of charge, but registration is required. This event will be held in Japanese.
