Founded in 1963, the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC) is one of the largest and most vibrant Japanese cultural centres in the world. Our mandate is to promote Japanese culture and Japanese Canadian heritage.
The JCCC offers a broad spectrum of Japanese traditional and contemporary cultural programs, martial arts, festivals, performances, film screenings, art exhibitions and other experiences for its thousands of members and hundreds of thousands of annual visitors.
The JCCC's heritage programming recognizes the sacrifices and accomplishments of the Japanese Canadian community and contributes to the evolving Nikkei experience in Canada. The lessons of cultural acceptance implicit in the story of the Japanese Canadian community are as relevant today as ever.
The JCCC is a registered charitable, not-for-profit organization.
