The National Association of Japanese Canadians (NAJC)

The National Association of Japanese Canadians (NAJC) is a non-profit incorporated community organization in Canada that represents the Japanese Canadian community. Formed in 1947, the NAJC focuses on human rights and community development. The Young Leaders Committee works under the umbrella of the NAJC. The NAJC is also the major sponsor of the Young Leaders Conferences which typically run concurrently with the NAJC Annual General Meetings & Conferences.

The NAJC has a number of member and affiliate organizations. If you are not already in contact with these organizations, we strongly encourage you to reach out to your local organization, or if you are not near one, please do not hesitate to contact the NAJC National Office (national@najc.ca) or the Young Leaders Committee (JCYoungLeaders@gmail.com).
