National Japanese Speech Contest

The National Japanese Speech Contest (NJSC) was established in 1989 under the auspices of the Japanese Embassy in Ottawa in order to promote Japanese language education in Canada. The NJSC is sponsored by the Japan Foundation and is held at a different location across Canada annually. Consulates General of Japan, universities and corporations have provided various support and assistance in making this event a very successful and important to the Japanese community. The NJSC is now co-hosted by the National Japanese Speech Contest Organizing Committee and the Canadian Association for Japanese Language Education.
