Japanese Hall (administrative host organization)

Founded in 1906 by early Japanese immigrants to Canada, VJLS-JH is a non-profit grassroots community organization committed to the values of education, culture and community.  It has continued to provide Japanese language and culture, community programming for 112 years and has now become a large-scale childcare provider.    It is the only property restored to any Japanese Canadian organization or individual after the property dispossesion of all Japanese Canadians at the beginning of World War II and the Internment.   

This year, we mark the historic milestone of the 90th birthday of our 1928 Heritage Building (now Children's World Childcare Centre).   We also jointly celebrate the 90th birthday of official Japan/Canada Relations.  This is a fundraising pilot project to support educational resources on Japanese Canadian history for primary and secondary students. The VJLS&JH is proud to partner in the development of teaching materials with the Teacher Resource Cluster of the Landscapes of Injustice Project, University of Victoria, which is researching the dispossession of the property of Japanese Canadians.
