Based in the city of Tomakomai in the Hokkaidō Prefecture, the story of Maple High School begins in 1877, when Manzo Nagano, the first Japanese immigrant to Canada, arrived in British Colombia.
Between 1877 and 1914 over 10.000 Japanese had immigrated to Canada. In 1889 Japan ease its ban on emigration & opened a consulate in Vancouver and a few cities were forced to enact a bread ration due to the significant number of Japanese immigrants. In an effort to ease tensions, the Canadian and Japanese governments began talks to establish a new international relationship. The Canadian ambassadors on a diplomatic mission soon arrived in Japan, and various schools started an international program to teach western culture and values.
In 1929, the Canadian embassy in Tokyo opened and began cooperation with various economic and industrial districts. It was noted that the general climate of Hokkaido was very similar to Canada.
There was great cooperation and many advancements in the fields of Art and music, culture, and forestry, and through Canadian assistance Hokkaido’s fishing industry flourished and their mutual relationship eventually culminated in a joint Canadian-Japanese school. Hokkaido is split horizontally into two areas with different regional governments, and after an unfinished school ship was purchased from the United Kingdom, the school on the southern half was named Maple High School.
