Japanese-Canadians During/After the Internment. Relationship between Japan And Canada Today THHE ENNND :) Japanese Settlers In Canada How are the Japanese significant to Canada In march of 1942 ,it is believed that the Canadian Government forced Japanese-Canadians out of their homes, torn apart from their families,their lives and their homes and put into internment camps in British Columbia during World War II. The Canadian Government thought they had no choice. Canadians were worried and feared that after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Japan would undertake another bombing on U.S or Canadian soil. Canadians were under the impression that "Japanese nationals and Japanese Canadians living on the west coast of Canada could act as spies for Japan." The relocation of Japanese Canadians was not done according to Canada's demographic reputation. Japanese Canadians were kept under detention until the end of the war. Attack on Pear Harbor Japan was already at war regionally making the dream of a greater japan under emperor Hirohito. Finally japan invaded china, which triggered the breakdown of japanese american diplomatic relations and they went into a war. The basic reason was the japanese wanted china as a corridor for its military supplies which were already left maximum for 2 year. After wards the U.S told japan to back off and that's when japan made the attack on pearl harbor. Japanese immigration to Canada before world war II The first wave of Japanese immigrants, called Issei (first generation), arrived between 1877 and 1928. Until the 1907 almost all immigrants were young men. In 1907, Canada insisted that japan limit the number of male immigrants to about 400 a year. As a result, most immigrants thereafter were women joining their husbands or unmarried women who were engaged to men in Canada. In 1928, Canada further restricted Japanese immigration to 150 persons annually. In 1940, during the SECOND WORLD WAR, Japanese immigration stopped altogether, and it did not resume until the mid-1960s. In 1988, Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney apologized for the social injustice performed against Japanese-Canadians during World War II. Along with this apology came a payment of $21,000 (Cdn.) as compensation for the losses and suffering of Japanese-Canadians who survived the wartime detention. They were housed in crude huts. Two bedrooms and a kitchen had to be shared by two families. Until 1943, there was no electricity or running water. Living conditions were so bad that food packages from Japan were sent, through the Red Cross, to interned Canadians in British Columbia. In these remote communities, they were kept under constant surveillance by the RCMP. Living Conditions For Japanese Canadians In The Internment Camps Also, people being transferred could only carry 68 kg of clothing, bedding, and cooking utensils for each adult.
