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.

Opening Hours

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

The regular Library Hours


The JCCCM Library will be closed on Sunday, May 20 and the offices will be closed on Monday, May 21 and for Victoria Day.

Thank you for your understanding.

A big thank you to all who donated their time, goods and talents, to our Spring Bazaar!

With revenues in excess of $14,200, it was one of our most successful bazaars ever! We could not have done it without your dedication and generosity! Many thanks as well to all who came out on Sunday to support our efforts. We were rewarded with perfect bazaar weather!

Congratulations to the winners in our 50-50 Raffle; Ichiro Fujinaga, Grace Furuya and Steve Chan – all of whom have ties to the community’s taiko groups (another reason to get involved in our activities)!!
