Developing senior housing for Japanese Canadians

Transcripts available in the following languages:

We were trying to develop a sense of community, we were trying to do, we had certain prerequisites. We wanted to have so much money go to seniors, seniors' groups, and they had to have some kind of project that would help them. So that meant seniors, nursing-type homes, that type of thing. And it did, they, Toronto did come up with a good plan. Now you've got a big Momiji Center, which today houses Japanese Canadian older seniors, and they live there as, it's not nursing entirely, but it's a residence that gives them quite a few advantages. Then there was one that we made in Vancouver called Nikkei Place, and they have a seniors' residence there. Those are the two major ones. There's one in (Vernon, B.C.) and there's one in Ontario in a place called Beansville, and these were things that we put into.
