Established in 1978, the Association of Japanese Canadian Businesses and Professionals (Shinkikai) is an independent, non-profit organization with the mandate to provide our membership with networking and learning opportunities to develop, grow and improve their respective businesses through mutual exchange and friendship while promoting and contributing to Canada Japan relations.



Our activities extend to a wide range of relationships with Canadian and Japanese networking organizations such as the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC) and The Association of Japanese Commerce and Industry (Toronto Shokokai). Our members are also very active in many other Canadian business associations such as the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Toronto Board of Trade.
