Archive & Collections

The Archive and Collections at the JCCC house over 50 years of donated histories, artifacts and photographs. The Archive and Collections are used for personal and academic research, permanent and temporary exhibits and as supporting materials in publications and exhibits outside of the JCCC.

The Archive and Collections relies on volunteers for cataloguing, photographing, and data entry of donated items. If you wish to learn more about volunteering with the Archive and Collections, please submit a volunteer profile on the Volunteer page.

If you have items pertaining to Japanese Canadian history that you would like to donate to the Archive and Collections, please contact Theressa Takasaki at for more information.
