With the YLC, Alex has helped oversee the Young Leaders Fund grant program and plan various events and initiatives to engage and connect young Nikkei from across Canada.


Alex currently works for Elections Canada, coordinating planning activities and supporting election administrators across the country. In his free time, he enjoys playing hockey, soccer, and various creative pursuits.
