    The fifth Tohoku Internship Project has concluded on Sunday, March 11, as the students from Takata High School headed back to their hometown. Since 2012, the CCCJ and Ganbatte365 have been active in organizing the program, which welcomes high school students from Rikuzentakata for a week-long internship and homestay experience in Tokyo.

    This year, there were 10 girls and 5 boys participating in the program; this marked the first time the majority of participants were female. Intern students were allocated to companies in a diversity of fields from flight training and insurance to government and hospitality.

    On Friday evening, we celebrated the conclusion of the students' internship by throwing a party at the Hylife Pork Table restaurant in Daikanyama. The students gave short presentations about their experiences over the week, many of which showed exceptional maturity and insight. One program alumnus, who has since started a job in Tokyo, also attended the party. After the event, the students had a free day on Saturday to spend with their classmates and host families. On Sunday, there were some tearful goodbyes on the shinkansen platform at Tokyo station. 

    We want to thank all participating companies, host families and students. We already look forward to the 6th Tohoku Internship Project next year.

    On February 15, we hosted a double event - a Housewarming party for the new CCCJ office, and then a Canadian hockey night at the nearby Brew La La bar. Both events were open for everyone and attracted a good number of people. 

    Our Housewarming party was an informal event celebrating the new Shimbashi office, where we moved in January. The event was officially sponsored by our office move sponsors: Maple Leaf Foods, Apex K.K., Mr. Ron Haigh (Toyota) and Mr. Robert Fuller (Currie and Brown). The party featured Canadian beer from AMMS Japan, which also supplies Brew La La. There were approximately 30-40 people attending our Housewarming.

    The Canadian Hockey Night, held at Brew La La, was a spin on our traditional University alumni mixer events. While a number of alumni did attend, the event also attracted many people from the Housewarming party as well as other CCCJ members and non-members. It was a full house enjoying Canadian craft beers and cheering for the Canadian team in their first Pyeongchang game. The atmosphere was lively until the end. Fortunately, the night ended in a 5-1 win for Canada. 

    The CCCJ sincerely hopes all attendees enjoyed these events.

    On 29 September 2017, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Japan (CCCJ) hosted its annual Maple Leaf Gala at the Tokyo American Club, in Azabudai, Minato ward.

    This year’s Gala was hosted in the presence of Her Imperial Highness, Princess Takamado, and His Excellency, Ambassador of Canada to Japan Ian Burney.

    The CCCJ’s Maple Leaf Gala is truly one of the highest-profile events in the Japan-Canada relationship. This year attracted 260 Members and their guests, representing both Japanese and Canadian companies, as well as governments and other organizations. The theme of this year's Gala was Canada 150, to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary of confederation. 

    CCCJ Chairman Neil van Wouw noted in his Gala address that the CCCJ embodies the mutual respect and affection Canada and Japan share, and the 2017 Maple Leaf Gala celebrates that friendship. Today, the CCCJ’s membership is increasingly a mixture of Canada and Japan, and its activities reflect this, embracing more Japanese organizations and individuals with an affinity for Canada than ever before, with events like the Maple Leaf Gala taking this into account.

    Members and their guests enjoyed a luxurious five course meal and engaging entertainment. 

    The Chamber extends a special thanks to Maple Leaf Gala Platinum, Gold, and Silver Sponsors for their generous support, and to the Members and their guests who took part. It is this active engagement that allows for the strengthening of the ties across our Chamber, and between Japan and Canada.

    CCCJ Executives and members welcomed Ms. Laurel Broten, President and CEO of Nova Scotia Business Inc. to Japan on Monday, May 29th at the Embassy of Canada to Japan.

    CCCJ Honourable Advisor and former Ambassador to Canada Sadaaki Numata and former CCCJ Chair Wilf Wakely presented the vision of partnership between Nova Scotia and the CCCJ. CCCJ Vice-Chair Neil van Wouw also attended the lunch with Governor Kiyo Weiss and Phil O'Neill, asking Ms. Broten on what Nova Scotia's vision is for its plans in Japan. Ms. Broten provided a detailed presentation about Nova Scotia's growing influence in Canada and North America in sectors such as fisheries, agriculture, ICT, and Defense, while firmly committing Nova Scotia's strategy in Asia going forward. 

    With its location and several noticeable advantages (such as its highly skilled workforce), the two sides agreed that Nova Scotia is a primary investment destination for Japanese firms and the CCCJ will look to assist partners across the Pacific in making the relationship between Japan and Nova Scotia even stronger.

    The CCCJ's 16th Annual Golf tournament brought together 51 ethusiastic golfers from Tokyo's business community this year at Tsutsujigaoka Country Club. A day of perfect weather, with blue skies and just enoguh sun, we enjoyed a full day of golf and beer before finishing off with an award dinnner party on the terrace. As with previous years, our tournament was played in a team scramble format; no one plays alone, and no worries about odd and wayward shots! Teamwork and fun are key points to this event! Our best foursome team this year actually went to a team of 3: Micheal Treytiak, Dean Rogers, and Kevin Plastow, with a score of 60. 

    We would like to give our special thanks to David Anderson, Warren Arbuckle, Tad Furuta, and Kieron Cashell for organizing this event.  We would also like to thank Tsutsujigaoka Country Club, and our sponsors below for their generous support in providing prizes.
