About the Speech Contest

The National Japanese Speech Contest (Canada) was established in 1989 under the auspices of the Japanese Embassy in Ottawa in order to promote the Japanese language education in Canada.

NJSC has been sponsored by the Japan Foundation and held at a different location annually. Consulates General of Japan, universities and corporations have provided various support and assitance in making this event a very successful and important event. NJSC is organized by a regional organizing committee.

The first prize winners of the three categories (Beginners', Intermediate, and Advanced) in the regional speech contests are eligible to participate in NJSC. Airfare and accommodations are provided.
