On Friday, May 30th, the 9th Annual Nikkei Classic Golf Tournament will raise funds in support of programs and activities taking place at Nikkei Centre.
On this day over 144 friends of the Japanese Canadian & Immigrant Community will join together to enjoy a round of golf and a banquet dinner at Riverway Golf Course in Burnaby, BC. Please join us on this fun-filled day in support of a strong and vibrant community at Nikkei Place.
Be a part in helping us reach our goal to raise $30,000 to support the following programs and activities at Nikkei Place:
Archives and Collections: Thousands of items have been donated to the Japanese Canadian National Museum and are kept in our archive and collections division. All Canadians can enjoy artifacts that help preserve Japanese Canadian heritage. These help bridge the gap between past and future generations and help honour the efforts of our parents and grandparents. Preservation of Japanese Canadian heritage is important for future generations of Japanese Canadians wanting to know more about their past.
Educational Programs: Each year over 2,000 students and teachers from BC’s public school system come to the Nikkei Centre for a curriculum-based educational tour that educates them about the unique Japanese experience in Canada. Learning about other cultures and about social justice issues helps our future generations become stronger and more tolerant Canadians.
Cultural Programs: Nikkei Centre features several Japan-related programs such as Japanese Language Instruction, Martial Arts, Flower Arranging, Brush Stroke Painting, and more. These programs are critical for helping Japanese immigrants preserve their culture and Canadians interested in learning about Japanese culture.

Caring for Our Seniors – Iki Iki Seniors Program: Iki Iki is a day program that addresses an unspoken and hidden need to help seniors with dementia connect to their community and receive its social support. For seniors who may feel isolated, marginalized, stigmatized or discouraged from participating in regular community activities. Iki Iki is designed to improve quality of life for seniors with dementia so they are less isolated and feel engaged and involved in their community. The way it works is unique and powerful: healthcare workers are partnered with a senior and together they join regular seniors programming. This not only allows our seniors to stay connected with their community but it also provides training for instructors and other participants in how to care for seniors.
