New CCCJ Members Winter 2018


Name Geneva Hargreaves
CCCJ Publications and Communications Committee
After volunteering for the 150th Maple Leaf Gala, I decided to become a member of the chamber to have more opportunities to connect with other like-minded Canadians and people from all over the world working in Japan. I’m most looking forward to chairing the Publications and Communications Committee, and contributing to the Global Diversity Management and Events Committees.


Name Aaron Reist
Company Goldman Sachs Realty Japan, Ltd.
I had considered a membership in the past and would ask myself, “what can the CCCJ do for me?” At the time, the answer didn’t seem clear and procrastination got the better of me. The question I should’ve asked is, “what can we accomplish as a community?” There was only one way to find out: get involved.


Name Paul Kezin
Company Cole Haan
I am a proud Canadian who also loves living and working in a global environment. I hope to connect with others who share similar experiences, or are seeking them. In doing so we can learn and succeed together.


Name Sarah Casanova
Company McDonald’s Japan
I’m looking forward to joining the chamber to stay connected with Canada, my home country. I was born and raised in Ontario, where my folks are still located. I’ve been away a long time as I’ve traveled throughout the McDonald’s system, and it’s always great to meet other Canadians along the way.

Non-resident Corporate

Japan is a very important trade and investment partner to the Edmonton Metropolitan Region in Alberta, Canada. We are committed to strengthening our friendships and business relationships in Japan and we plan to visit Japan often.

Name Jamal Abdourahman
Company Vancouver Fashion Week
With many clients from Japan participating in Vancouver Fashion Week each season, and now ourselves bringing Canadian and International designers to Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo every year through our new platform Global Fashion Collective, we are thrilled to be part of the community. We are looking to engage with Canadian companies to really celebrate Canadian culture and grow business together in the Japan market.
