Welcome to JETAA Ottawa!
JETAA Ottawa is the local chapter in Canada's Capital Region of JETAA-International, the global alumni association for former participants of the Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme. Officially launched in 1991, this community includes former and current participants from the Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme (JET) community, as well as individuals who have expressed a keen interest in Japan and the JET Programme.
TransPerfect Translations from New York has reached out to JETAA Ottawa looking for Japanese to English translators. The work involves a variety of general, legal and technical material to be translated from Japanese into English over the next month, with the possibility of future work. Flexible schedules. More information available upon request.
Please contact email@example.com if you are interested.
Please join JETAA Ottawa in observing a moment of silence at 14:46 ET today, Tuesday, March 11th. In 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck off Japan’s Tohoku coast resulting in a tsunami and eventual power plant nuclear crisis. Today is the third anniversary. Join us in remembering those lives lost, those lives changed forever.
As President of JETAA Ottawa for 2014, I’m happy to highlight some of JETAA Ottawa’s upcoming events for 2014. Coming up on March 6th we’ve got a museum visit to the Canadian Museum of History followed by a quick trip across the Alexandria bridge to the Earl of Sussex pub. In April, we plan to bring back our very successful photo show. This year also marks the 10th anniversary of our natsumatsuri summer festival, something that we are incredibly proud to present again this year on August 23rd. We hope to go all out for this year’s festival. For more information on all these events check out our Facebook page, website or this newsletter. We’ll see you out there!
