The Canada-Japan Society of B.C. is pleased to support the Consulate General of Japan who are presenting the sixth and final forum in the PARALLEL PATHS series. "Recent Years: 1990-Present" on Friday, November 28 at 7 pm at the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre, 6688 Southoaks Crescent, Burnaby
This is the last in a series of 6 forums tracing the parallel histories of the Japanese consulate in Vancouver and the
Japanese community featuring keynote speakers, reports from Japan’s Diplomatic Archives, and some personal recollections from those who lived the history.
In this final session of the forum series we will look at recent Japanese Canadian experiences and then turn the discussion toward what may lie ahead in the future by asking the question: What can we learn from our shared history?
Keynote speaker Greg Masuda will tell his story as a third- generation Japanese Canadian and focus on what it means to be Japanese Canadian after Redress.
Consul General Okada will briefly highlight key historical events and talk about current Japan-Canada diplomatic relations: What are some important issues? What is the future outlook?
Following the speakers, there will be a panel discussion and a Q&A session open for audience participation. This is a free event open to the public with registrations appreciated: firstname.lastname@example.org
