The Canada - Japan Society (CJS) cordially invites you to our sixth annual: “Surviving in Canada – Information for Newcomers

This long-running event is for Japanese people new to Canada; whether studying, looking to immigrate, or just surviving in the Greater Toronto Area. The purpose of this event is to make the transition to Canadian life easier by offering Japanese speakers who will share their unique experience and advice for living in Canada.

They will cover topics such as immigration, everyday life, and where to turn to for support in Canada as Japanese. They will also share their view on the challenges of living in Canada and culture adoption.

The presentations will be primarily in Japanese followed by a Q&A session. The second part of the evening includes a reception where you will have the opportunity to network and talk with the speakers and other guests over some light refreshments. Non-newcomers to Canada are also welcome. The participation fee collected by CJS will be used to cover expenses of the event.

Please RSVP to:

If you are a Japanese newcomer to Canada, this is an event you don't want to miss!

April 3, 2014: Join us at our April Ichimoku-kai (IMK)

Is spring finally here? Feeling energetic after a long, cold winter? Then come to Canada-Japan Society's Ichimoku-kai (IMK) on Thursday, April 3rd at Manpuku Japanese Restaurant. Join us for a great evening of cultural exchange, "oishii" Japanese food and drinks, door prizes, and lots of fun!

Ichimoku-kai (IMK) literally means the “first Thursday meeting” and since 1995 it has been the Canada-Japan Society’s signature monthly social event, naturally taking place on the first Thursday of every month.  It is a great place to informally network, make new and interesting friends, practise your Japanese or English, and – most of all – have a good time!  Usually, half the attendees are Japanese and half are Canadian, all with an interest in or connection to Japan.  Attendees receive special food and drink discounts and have the chance to win some exciting door prizes.

We hope to see you there - and come early for a good seat!
