Message from the CJS Membership Director
The Canada-Japan Society of Toronto (CJS) is a group of people
interested in Canada, Japan, and the Canada-Japan relationship. The
CJS is unique in having members that represent a wide spectrum of
backgrounds, and its events reflect this richness.

As the Director in charge of memberships, I look forward to welcoming
new members and reviewing comments and suggestions from our members.
Our goal is to keep the CJS vibrant and to keep its events relevant,
interesting and enjoyable for our members. Please feel free to
contact me at if you have any questions or comments.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our current
