About the event

"Walk in Canada, Talk on Japan" is back again this year. Supported by the Prime Minister's Office in Japan, the project aims to further develop Japan-Canada relations by increasing understanding of Japan in Canada via grass-roots exchange. A team of Japanese citizens with various backgrounds travel to Canada to share their perspectives and encourage open discussions with the local communities.

Join us for an exciting and unique opportunity to meet Ambassador Oshima and his team of panelists! The team consists of three members with backgrounds in business consulting, international finance and one of the top universities in Japan. Engage with the ambassador and his team in stimulating dialogue on the economic and business relationship between Japan and Canada.
