Unfortunately, Historic Joy Kogawa House is not currently wheelchair accessible. The house was built in 1912, and we are currently fundraising and undertaking accessibility planning to make the house universally accessible.
Historic Joy Kogawa House is the childhood home of Canadian author Joy Kogawa. Joy and her family lived in the house until 1942, when they were sent to an internment camp along with thousands of other Canadians of Japanese descent. Now used as a site for author residencies and literary events, the house stands as a historical reminder of the internment experience of Japanese Canadians during WW2.
