    In the interest of maintaining as much of our regular programming as possible, the EJCA will be participating in the Restriction Exemption Program outlined in provincial health orders. This will remain in place until further notice.

    Effective September 20th, access to the EJCA Centre for all users age 12 and over will be restricted to those who can provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination status. See COVID-19 Measures

    The Centre Reopening Celebration scheduled for September 11th has been cancelled

    In the July-August Moshi Moshi, we announced this event but have decided to postpone it until further notice. The COVID-19 situation in Alberta is not improving and the Board does not want to compromise anyone's health.

    It is disappointing but we feel it is better to keep everyone safe until the situation improves and stabilizes.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please remove this date from your calendar.

    Hello, origami crane volunteers!
    EJCA received an acknowledgement from the Misericordia Hospital—the newsletter, Vital Beat, posted a story about the origami crane project:

    Happy Easter!

    Hi EJCA members and friends, 日本語は後半にあります。

    EJCA received a request from the Volunteer Coordinator at the Misericordia Hospital. “We have a project to make over 1,000 Origami Cranes for the long-term patients at the Hospital. Would you please work with us to make one “1,000 Cranes Wreath” and Easter cards with cranes for long-term patients?”

    Because of the COVID-19 situation, these long-term patients have been isolated and very lonely with no one visiting them. Volunteers wanted to do something to cheer them up at Easter time.

    There is a true story of Sadako, a girl in Japan, who kept making origami cranes while she was fighting leukemia that was the after effect of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. Since then, origami cranes have been symbols of Peace, Hope, Love, and Healing.

    The EJCA board approved the donation of as many origami cranes as possible… maybe 1,000! EJCA will provide you with origami paper. But we have to hurry; we have a very tight timeline!

    Let’s make origami cranes and send our Easter message to these patients.

    Everyone is welcome to join this wonderful opportunity: If you do not know how to make origami cranes, this will be a perfect opportunity to learn; it is easy!

    Please email (events@ejca.org) as soon as possible if you can help. EJCA will post-mail you origami paper right away if you need any. If you have some of your own that you would like to donate, that is even better.

    Please let us know:

    1. Your full name
    2. Your email address
    3. How many cranes you can make (20, 50, 100, 200, other?)
    4. If you require origami paper, please send your mailing address so that EJCA can post-mail origami paper to you.


    1. Use standard origami paper of 15cm x 15cm, colour or with design.
    2. PDF instructions or YouTube video. There are number of other instructions available.
    3. When made, please do not open them at the end. Keep them flat for safe shipping.
    4. Bundle each ten cranes with elastic bands. Put them in an envelope or such. Put your name, email address and the number of cranes on the outside of the envelope.
    5. By March 10, drop the envelope/box in the mailbox at the centre. An envelope/box should be smaller than 30 cm x 35 cm x 10 cm to fit into the mail slot.

    Please invite your family members and friends to join you!

    Any questions? events@ejca.org

    Deliver your cranes flat
