Kristie Collins

I originally hail from Prince Edward Island, but will soon celebrate 20 years of living and working in Japan. I am an associate professor of gender studies and Canadian studies at Reitaku University, Chiba Prefecture, and my research ranges from lived experiences and media representation of female singleness to strong female characters in Canadian literature and foreign women in Japanese academia. I am looking forward to meeting other CCCJ members who share an interest in tackling social justice and gender issues. 

Sean McGinty

I am an associate professor at Nagoya University’s School of Law. I teach a variety of law subjects but my main research focus is on corporate law and, more specifically, the rules governing executive remuneration. I’m originally from Ottawa, but went to law school at the University of Victoria, before coming to Japan to do a Doctor of Laws degree at Kyushu University. I’m happy to be joining the CCCJ in order to broaden my connections to the Canadian community in Japan. 

Michaela Sullivan-Paul

I have recently relocated from Kelowna, British Columbia, to Paris, France, to begin a double master’s degree in Public and International Policy at the Paris Institute of Political Studies (generally known as Sciences Po) and The University of Tokyo. I have joined the CCCJ to complement my academic endeavours and create professional relationships to be solidified upon my arrival in Japan, scheduled for this September. I look forward to working with you all at the CCCJ in helping to create stronger and lasting relations between Canada and Japan. 


Harold Godsoe

I am a social and economic Japan optimist, and a Canada-trained, U.S.-licensed attorney. Currently, I work at Kojima Law Offices in Tokyo, with teams of Japanese lawyers, with whom I manage international corporate matters. I earned an LL.M. and taught law at American University Washington College of Law in Washington D.C., was awarded my Juris Doctor by the University of Western Ontario, and my undergrad degree by Dalhousie University. I’m a proud native of Halifax, Nova Scotia.  

Non-Kanto Individual

Nola Lacey

I am an incoming Co-ordinator of International Relations for Nara Prefecture, as part of the JET Programme, and an MBA Student at GLOBIS University in Tokyo. I am from Toronto, Canada, and enjoyed taking Japanese studies at the University of Toronto and while an exchange student at Rikkyo University in Tokyo. I joined the CCCJ because I want to raise awareness about Canada in Japan, and promote bilateral relations.
