Who we are

We are a charitable fundraising organization for the “Nikkei Place” Japanese-Canadian community.

Together with our partners, Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre (NNMCC) and the Nikkei Seniors Health Care and Housing Society (NSHCHS — also commonly known as Nikkei Home and New Sakura-so), we work to build a strong and vibrant community that is shared with all.
