"We proclaim that we will contribute to friendship between the town of Ishikari, in the prefecture of Hokkaido, Japan and the District of Campbell River, B.C., Canada with the desire to continue to strive for advance in friendship, and promotion of mutual interchanges in the various fields of economy, culture, education, sports, and so on."


With this proclamation an enduring relationship was born.

We as a society endeavor to live up to this proclamation by sponsoring cultural events showcasing the unique relationship our community has with Ishikari, and by sponsoring exchange programs to help our community members experience it for themselves.
