shapeimage_1Welcome to the website of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre of Montreal (JCCCM). Formally established as a non-profit, community organization in 1975, the JCCCM serves as a meeting point for the Japanese Canadian community as well as for all those interested in Japanese culture in the Greater Montreal Area. In particular, the Centre provides a focal point where the unique history and cultural heritage of the Montreal Japanese Canadian community can be sustained, promoted, and shared by all, irrespective of cultural background. With the changing demographic nature of the community, particularly the influx of immigration from Japan (from post-war to the present) as well as a large interest from individuals of non-Japanese heritage, the JCCCM also offers and supports a variety of cultural, educational, social, and recreational activities to promote and develop a spirit of mutual understanding, appreciation, and cooperation between all facets of our diverse community as well as with the general public.

***NOTICE*** – due to a plumbing emergency, the JCCCM will be closed to all activities, until further notice. Thank you for your understanding. 

Opening Hours

The JCCCM’s office hours are Monday to Friday, 9 am to 4 pm.

We will also need old, light-coloured t-shirts that we can use to wash walls. Please bring them, if you have any to spare.

 <Thank you note for Mochitsuki 2018>

Thank you to everyone who supported our Annual Mochi-Tsuki, held last week. With over 1350 lbs. of mochi produced by over 200 volunteers, this was another highly successful event.
The winners of the volunteer draws were Ka Hei Chu, who won the Apple TV, and Jason Tsunokawa, who won the Canadiens hockey tickets. Congratulations!

FYI, there is no mochi left for sale! For those who pre-ordered mochi, but have not yet picked it up, please do so before November 30. All mochi unclaimed by this date will be sold at the Craft and Food Sale, on Dec. 2.

Thank you!
