"Friendship Through Flowers"
Motto of Ikebana International

Ikebana International (I.I.) is a non-profit cultural organization with headquarters in Tokyo, Japan, is dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement. Founded in 1956, it has now spread to over 60 countries/areas, with 165 chapters and membership of approximately 8,500.

Monthly meetings are held on Saturday mornings as per the programme, with a break for January and the summer months. To accomodate more members, the new season will hold monthly meetings on Saturdays instead. All visitors and guests are welcome.

Saturday meetings are held in the morning starting at 10:30 am and usually last around 2 hours.

We meet at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre:  6 Garamond Court (Wynford and DVP)
