The Art Miki National Leadership Award is given every two years to an individual who has shown leadership and who has made outstanding contributions to strengthen the Japanese Canadian community at both the local and the national levels. It is a lasting acknowledgement to the pivotal role played by Dr. Miki in the Redress Settlement of 1988 with the Government of Canada as well as his continued advocacy for human rights for all Canadians. The Award – formerly known as the NAJC National Award – is the highest award given by this organization.
