The Canadian home of JET Alumni


JETAA Canada is the "umbrella" organization of JET Programme alumni associations across Canada, made up of the seven recognized chapters across the nation. If you're a former JET participant living in Canada—no matter when, where, or how long you lived in Japan, whether or not you returned to the region you departed from, or even if you didn't depart from Canada—congratulations! You can consider yourself a member of JETAA Canada. Lifetime membership, no fees now or ever. All we ask is that you please get in touch with the JETAA chapter in your local area.
