UBC honours Japanese Canadian students sent to internment camps

The treatment of Japanese Canadians and Japanese nationals during the Second World War is a dark period of Canadian history – a period few Canadians fully understand or want to discuss. In 1942, 21,000 Japanese Canadians were forced to leave the west coast and their homes and were sent to internment camps. Now, 70 years later, UBC will honour 76 students who were unable to complete their university studies or missed their graduation ceremonies when they were sent away in 1942.

1942 Japanese Canadian UBC Students Fund: A fund has been created as a tribute to recognize the Japanese Canadian students of 1942. Donations will support the community-based research of the Asian Canadian Studies program, as part of UBC’s commitment to educating future students about the injustices of the Second World War.
