A Moment in Time


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.

JETAA Ottawa February 2014 Email Update

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!

JETAA Ottawa President
