The Ontario Japanese Speech Contest was first held in 1983. The 2016 OJSC is the 34th Contest. Students learning Japanese at universities and language schools present their speeches in four categories: Beginners', Intermediate, Advanced and Open. OJSC has been the most successful Contest in Canada in terms of quality participants and excellent speeches.
OJSC attracts more than 50 participants every year and offers the best opportunities for learners of Japanese to demonstrate their knowledge and performance of the Japanese language.
The first prize winners are entitled to participate in the National Japanese Speech Contest.

This year's contest will be held on Saturday, March 4, 2017.
