Database of Names

In preparation for the Monument project, a research team at the University of Victoria, under the direction of Michael Abe has developed a database of names from 14,500 Library and Archives Canada case files in addition to multiple databases. This research has been ongoing from January 2023 through January 2024. This list of names contains Japanese Canadians who were uprooted and displaced. An additional list of those born in captivity from 1942 to 1949 is also being developed.

Japanese Canadian Legacies are initiatives that honour our elders past and present. We are grateful to be doing this work on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples.
