Nikkei Place is a campus of three non-profit organizations working collectively for the good of our local, national, and international Canadian and “Nikkei” (Japanese ancestry) communities.

Together, our mandates support children, new immigrants, and seniors with engaging programs, activities, events and services.

Help provide essential operational funding to Nikkei Place

At Nikkei Place, we are feeling the effects of the COVID-19 crisis across our three charities.

Nikkei Centre begins gradual re-opening on June 2, but faces a number of new operational costs and challenges due to the pandemic. Nimi Nikkei Home remains in lockdown, to ensure the health and safety of our seniors and our staff. The Foundation has had to cancel our annual fundraising Gala but continues to communicate with our donors and work with our partners to identify new avenues of support.

Your gift today will help minimize the financial impact that COVID-19 continues to have on Nikkei Place.

I’ve learned a lot through being involved here at Nikkei Place — whether it be about the internment, Japanese culture in general, or my family’s history… people need to come here to appreciate all that happens here, to see that we have a great facility with lots of interesting programs, and that we have a caring place for elderly people to live.
