About Tonari Gumi Programs:

We are proud that Tonari Gumi has been able to provide a wide array of programs and services of benefit to the Japanese Canadian community for some 40 years. We try our best to meet the needs of the community in both Japanese and English.


Every Wednesday and Friday at noon, join us for an economical and healthy Japanese style lunch with other seniors. Please make a reservation the day before by either coming to our community resource center or calling 604-687-2172.


Volunteers and staff help seniors get out to local activities and events by arranging group outings and walking tours geared towards their various abilities.


Volunteers and various physiotherapy experts lead exercise, Osteofit, and Hula classes to provide healthy activities for our seniors.

We offer volunteer-led educational and recreational programs on a daily basis during weekdays, and we also offer some special workshops and other events on weekends and holidays. We have many different programs geared to a wide variety of interests.
