The Healing Fund for Japanese Canadians is for survivors, survivor families, and other Japanese Canadians who were directly and indirectly harmed by the clergy sexual abuse of the former Anglican Priest Gordon Goichi Nakayama. The fund provides life opportunities and supports personal well-being. Learn about our support today.
Support for Groups
Community Healing Initiatives
Survivors of Mr. Nakayama's abuse are across Canada. We want to offer our support to your local community for inspiring ways to address the legacy of trauma.
If you would like to plan, host, or attend an event please fill in a Community Feedback Form today.
Providing Access to Opportunities
Available to students of survivor families enrolled in a training program, vocational courses, college, university or other education program.
If you have recently graduated, or if you are currently too young to apply, please fill in our Community Feedback Form.
Help guide the rollout of the Healing Fund by submitting a community feedback form. We ask for anyone who has a family connection to a survivor of Mr. Nakayama's abuse to take part in our outreach effort that will determine where we need to allocate our limited resources.
