Japanese Canadian History

This visit list has been created in an effort to visit the new highway road signs that have been posted throughout BC to educate travellers about the history of the Japanese Canadian community in British Columbia. As a descendant of internees who resided in various camps (and whose father appears – as a young child – in the background in the historic East Lillooet photograph posted by a community organization on another visit list), this list is an important part of our family and cultural history. Also important are visiting relevant museums and sites that have appeared in the more recent past, in order to educate future generations in an effort to create meaningful change in our collective lives.
