Land Lots

Land Lots

The land lots collection is a dataset of 2198 locations identified by the team as either a Japanese Canadian-owned property or a neighbouring property chosen by LOI researchers for comparison. These lots are associated with the land title records. This collection is also complemented by the Vancouver street indexes.

Readers of these historical materials will encounter derogatory references to Japanese Canadians and euphemisms used to obscure the intent and impacts of the internment and dispossession. While these are important realities of the history, the Landscapes of Injustice Research Collective urges users to carefully consider their own terminological choices in writing and speaking about this topic today as we confront past injustice.
