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.

Support Nikkei Place on Giving Tuesday ~ November 30!

November 30, 2021 is Giving Tuesday. Join this global movement to spread generosity and good will this season with a gift to our Nikkei Place community! A gift to Nikkei Place can support our vital missions and our enduring community legacy. Please consider making a donation today.

Here’s how your support can make a difference:

  • Give to Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre in support of their Inspiration Fundraiser, on now until February 2022. Nikkei Centre is a home for Japanese Canadian history, heritage and culture. When you give to Nikkei Centre, you support a place where diverse audiences come together to connect, learn and inspire! All proceeds support the Friends of Nikkei Centre Maintenance Fund.
  • Give to Nikkei Seniors Health Care and Housing Society to help ensure independence, respect, dignity, privacy, and choice for seniors at Nikkei Place. Your support can provide funding for programs that help seniors remain socially, mentally, and physically engaged, and promote Kenko de nagaiki — a long and happy life!
  • Give to Nikkei Place Foundation to help ensure the future of Nikkei Place for the next generation. Be part of our lasting legacy.

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.
