International Women's Celebration Breakfast

International Women’s Day was March 8, but the CCCJ thinks the wonderful women in our community deserve more than a single day of celebration. Join us on March 28 at Sarabeth’s near Tokyo Station for an international women’s breakfast. This will be a casual breakfast gathering. Enjoy a cup of coffee and some good conversation before going about your international women’s business. 

This event is open to people of all genders, but we will hold a majority of seats for women-identifying attendees.

More than fun and games: Successfully investing in Canada’s thriving creative industry

  • October 31 (Tue) Registration Closed
  • 09:00 ~ 10:30

Canada is the third largest country for video game development in the world after Japan and the US. And the number of creative and development facilities across Canada is growing due to generous government support and a large pool of skilled talent. This makes it an attractive jurisdiction for Japanese companies looking to expand their footprint internationally, set up resources closer to the US, or simply access the talent pool via hiring or acquisition.
