[Event Report] CCCJ Alumni Mixer

CCCJ members and alumni associations from various Canadian universities (listed below), packed Roppongi BrewDog last Thursday for a laid back no RSVP, no cover charge cash bar “Back to School” mixer. People in attendance were diverse in background and industry, but all shared a common Japan-Canada link.

This event was organized by the CCCJ in association with the following alumni associations:

  • McGill MBA Japan and McGill Alumni Association (confirmed)
  • University of Toronto Alumni Association (confirmed)
  • UBC  Alumni Association (confirmed)
  • SFU Alumni Association (confirmed)

On behalf of the CCCJ’s events committee and office, we would like to extend thanks to all of the participating alumni associations and their members. For the CCCJ as an organization, the event served as a great opportunity to meet professionals based in Tokyo with a strong affiliation to Canada, who are not [yet] members. Given the obvious connectivity and potential mutual benefit between Canadian university alumni groups and our membership, the CCCJ plans to host this event on a quarterly or bi-annual basis, going forward. 

Chamber events are a terrific opportunity to network and gain knowledge about various aspects of the Canada-Japan relationship and doing business in Japan. The CCCJ holds approximately 40 events per year covering a broad range of topics and themes. In addition to seminars and conferences on timely business issues, the CCCJ also works with networks throughout Japan to organize casual events – like the Back to School Mixer – to facilitate new opportunities for professionals to meet and grow their connectivity.
