We need your support!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.


We ask that hygiene measures be respected at all times while at the Centre,
including wearing your mask and sanitizing your hands. Also, please postpone your visit if you
have any COVID symptoms or if you have been in contact with anyone having these
