Sedai - Oral History


The Sedai Project is committed to collecting, documenting, preserving and sharing the history of the Japanese Canadians. The Sedai Committee collects and preserves Japanese Canadian history through audio and video recordings, and they continue to search for all Japanese Canadians who were born in the pre-war and war years to come and share their stories with them. Recorded interviews and documents on genealogy can be viewed on Sedai’s Vimeo Account. For more information, contact Su Yen Chong at 416-441-2345 ext. 303.
