Between September 19 and 21st, Japanese Canadian young leaders from across the country will gather in Vancouver for the 2014 Japanese Canadian Young Leaders Conference (JCYLC). Organized in partnership with the National Association of Japanese Canadians’ annual general meeting, the JCYLC will offer a unique opportunity for youth to connect and engage in community based discussions with each other over the course of a three day conference.

On Friday, JCYLC participants will network with each other, participate in tours around Steveston and the Nikkei National Museum in Burnaby, and socialize into the evening. On Saturday, the Community Building Workshop will have a “graphic facilitation” component and allow young leaders to engage in conversations related to specific fields of interest. A young leaders discussion panel on Sunday, “Rising Voices: Nikkei Leaders Speak”, will highlight the experiences of select leaders from various age categories and hometowns across the country. Opportunities to connect socially with fellow JCYLC participants, interact with the NAJC-AGM general programming, and of course, to eat great food will be present throughout the weekend!

This year’s conference will be a great one. We strongly encourage all young Japanese Canadians to register and get involved in JCYLC 2014! To register, and for more information about the conference and possible subsidies, visit or follow us on facebook, twitter, instagram, and youtube!
