About Heritage Department

Based out of the JCCC’s Nikkei Heritage Resource Centre, the JCCC’s Heritage Department strives to introduce the culture, history and legacy of the Japanese Canadians to all Canadians, while creating a tribute to the history of the Nikkei community and their contributions to the building of our nation. Heritage programs serve as an important focal point for the community.

The Heritage Department is operated by a group of art and culture professionals working together collaboratively to manage the Moriyama Nikkei Heritage Centre (MNHC), a multi-use museum space, the JCCC Art Gallery, a contemporary art gallery committed to a multi-disciplinary art program, Archives and Collection, and the Sedai, The Japanese Canadian Legacy Oral History Project.

The Heritage Department's mandate is to support and promote artistic and cultural practices of Japanese Canadians and beyond. The objectives of the Moriyama Nikkei Heritage Centre include:
