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.
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!
