Book Talk: “Gateway to Promise – Canada’s First Japanese Community”

Did you know that the very first Japanese community in Canada was in Victoria, B.C.?

To learn more about this historic fact, join us for a Book Talk at the JCCC in September on the book “Gateway to Promise – Canada’s First Japanese Community” by historian authors Ann-Lee and Gordon Switzer.

JCCC’s Heritage Committee and the Essay Club Hanayagi are pleased to be hosting two opportunities to hear authors Ann-Lee and Gordon Switzer and Keiko Miyamatsu-Saunders, a freelance journalist who organized the Nihongo version, talk about their book, a history of the Japanese immigrants and their descendants who settled in Victoria, B.C. in the 1880s-1900s.

In addition, some JCCC members have stories about their families included in the book. Stum and Yon Shimizu are given strong credit for helping to bring the prewar Victoria community to life through the telling of their own experiences as well as enlisting their friends to do the same.

The first session will be during the Wynford Seniors Club meeting on Wednesday September 6, 2017 from 10:30am-12:00pm and will be held in Shokokai Court. As this is a special occasion, non-members will also be welcome at this particular Wynford Seniors Club meeting.

The second session will be on Saturday September 9, 2017 from 2:00pm-4:00pm in the Moriyama Nikkei Heritage Centre, followed by a reception from 4:00pm-5:00pm.

Don’t miss out on this interesting opportunity to hear about the first Japanese community in Canada. Register for either session at the JCCC Reception Desk or by calling 416-4412345 or emailing with the subject line “Gateway to Promise” to heritage@jccc.on.ca.

Start: September 6, 2017 10:30 am
