< The History of 145 Years of Japanese Canadian Community > Online Seminars

Eighty years have passed since Japanese Canadians were interned in 1942. As well, 2022 marked the 145th anniversary of Manzo Nagano, a native of Nagasaki Prefecture, who is considered to be the first Japanese immigrant, to land in Canada. Today, the families of post-war immigrants already have three generations, accounting for about half of the total number of Japanese Canadians (2016), which is said to be 120,000.

However, we don’t know much about the history of pre-war Nikkei people. Let’s learn about the history of Nikkei in Canada to join the next generation of Nikkei heritage. Sponsored by the National Association of Japanese Canadians (NAJC), the Japanese New Immigrants Committee (JNIC) is presenting seminars on Zoom in Japanese.

By April 2023, we plan to carry out the 4th session that will be about the 1920s, the 5th session on the 1930s, and the 6th session on the moving out from camp life to the east of Rocky Mountains during the World War II. We will continue to complete all 10 sessions by the end of August.

*All online courses are done in Japanese with free admission to attend, but registration is required. Click the link below.
