Momiji is seeking a visionary Chief Executive to provide and inspire leadership to achieve Momiji mission and mandate and to respond to the emerging needs of our key stakeholders. We are looking for a leader who will build and enhance the profile of Momiji with stakeholders through active communication, fundraising and outreach to magnify our position as a leader in independent living for seniors.
The Japanese Canadian Legacy Monument Database team led by University of Victoria’s Michael Abe is developing the list of names of Japanese Canadians living in coastal BC prior to the forced uprooting to be preserved on a legacy monument in Victoria, BC.
We invite JC members to look at the working site that contains a working list of the names of people forcibly uprooted from coastal BC to outside the 100 mile “protected” zone.
Please join us for an information session and demonstration of the working site and case file records. Learn more about the project and find out how you can check your family names and place of origin and submit corrections and additions.
To our friends, colleagues and community of interest.
I regret to inform you that I will be leaving the role of Chief Executive Officer of Momiji Health Care Society. My last day of work at Momiji will be Oct 6th 2023.
It has been an honor and pleasure serving Momiji over the past five years. I am grateful for the unfailing support of the Board and the dedication of the staff alongside whom I have endeavored to advance the Momiji mission in service of older adults of Japanese descent. I have experienced great challenges and tremendous satisfaction in equal parts and will fondly remember this episode of my career.
The Board of Directors is working on a transition plan towards recruiting and appointing my successor. An interim arrangement will be put in place should that not be concluded by the time of my departure and communicated to all concerned
