Uncovering Japanese-Canadian History in BC

My visit list theme is Japanese-Canadian history in BC. The Dispossession and Internment of Japanese Canadians from 1942-49 is the story of how racism changed the course of a very vibrant and successful community’s history. It also tells the story of the amazing community resilience to overcome adversity and hardships to build the foundations for racial equality and the multicultural Canada of today.

Learn about the pre-war history of 8000 Japanese-Canadians and 400 businesses along Powell Street, and the Internment of Japanese-Canadians through the Historic Powell Street Walking Tours.
