5 Generations

The original 1996 exhibit was created by the Multicultural History Society of Ontario, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the Toronto Nikkei Archives and Resource Centre of the National Association of Japanese Canadians, Toronto Chapter.

Through the generosity of the Multicultural History Society, the exhibit is now on permanent loan to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. We are also grateful to the Ontario Trillium Foundation. With their support, 5 Generations is once again open to the public and accompanies the founding of Canadian Nikkei Heritage Hall. - Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre

We wish to thank the organizations and people for making this exhibit possible.
