Victoria Nikkei Cultural Society (VNCS)

The VNCS was formed in 1993 specifically to establish a sense of community for those of Japanese heritage and/or those interested in Japanese culture.

As stated in our constitution the purpose of our society is to:

a) Promote the awareness of Japanese culture for the benefit of its members and the greater community;

b) Represent the Japanese community to the greater community;

c) Support related Japanese organizations; and

d) Identify and serve the needs of the Nikkei community.

Throughout the year the VNCS organizes social events for its members, often with a theme related to a Japanese holiday or special occasion. Our promotion of Japanese culture is not only for our members but is also open to the greater community. Our annual Fall Bazaar and Mochi parties are examples of our outreach efforts. Where appropriate the VNCS will act as a spokes-organization for the Nikkei community. We work with other similar cultural/ethnic-minded organizations such as the National Association of Japanese Canadians and the Victoria Japanese Friendship Society, to promote Japanese culture. The VNCS is registered under the BC Society Act, has charitable status and is a member of the Intercultural Association of Greater Victoria.
