Inheriting Redress: The Ottawa Japanese Community Association Archive
Curated by Emily Putnam and Rebecca Dolgoy in partnership with the Ottawa Japanese Community Association


15 September 2019 – 26 January 2020

On September 22, 1988, the Government of Canada formally acknowledged and paid symbolic individual redress payments for the dispossession and internment of thousands of Japanese Canadians during World War II. Inheriting Redress brings together archival documents, memorabilia, photographs and other objects held by the Ottawa Japanese Community Association and individual community members who were active in the redress campaign in the 1980s. These objects illuminate a period of community activism and invite reflection on its legacy.

Emily, Rebecca and CUAG thank Sachiko Okuda, Matt Miwa, Melisa Kamibayashi-Staples, Alex Okuda-Rayfuse, and Gabriele Nishiguchi for their invaluable work on this project.

Admission: FREE
