Celebrating our community’s generosity: A thank you to our volunteers during Volunteer Appreciation Week

This year, Volunteer Appreciation Week is from April 18-24! We wish to offer a big THANK YOU to all our volunteers - both past and present - for all that you’ve done and continue to do to help us honour, preserve and share Japanese culture and Japanese Canadian history and heritage for a better Canada.

Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre staff were inspired to share this very special thank you message - a GIF compilation of staff thank you selfies!

Volunteers are at the heart of our work. We are so grateful for the generosity of volunteers who annually lend their time, energy, and skills to support our cultural programs, education, exhibits, research, and events. Over 300 volunteers contribute to our growth and successes, and we look forward to the day that we can welcome everyone back to share culture and camaraderie!
