The Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre and the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre are excited to embark on the development of the National Japanese Canadian Digitization Strategy. This strategic guide will be made available for any repository of Japanese Canadian archival materials and museum items to help lead future digitization projects. The NNMCC and JCCC are offering a short survey to help direct the strategy. This survey seeks to understand what points of Japanese Canadian history and heritage are important to the public. Participation in the survey is voluntary and can be withdrawn at any time.

This project is funded by the Government of Canada, Digital Access to Heritage - Museum Assistance Program. This is a federal grant that “provides funding to heritage organizations to digitize collections, develop digital content and build their capacity in these areas.” The strategy will be available nationally in both English and French.
