Welcome 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.
The JCCCM’s office hours are Monday to Friday, 9 am to 4 pm.
**** The JCCCM Library will be closed on Sunday, June 23 and 30, and the office will be closed on Monday, June 24 and July 1, for St-Jean Baptiste and Canada Day respectively. Thank you for your understanding. ****
