It wasn't just Japanese-Americans who were forced out of their homes and required to live in internment camps.  Japanese-Canadians were required to do the same.

The U.S. National Park Service (NPS) provides a map depicting the location of internment camps in Canada.  It is included in "Confinement and Ethnicity:  An Overview of World War II Japanese American Relocation Sites," by Jeffery F. Burton,  Mary M. Farrell, Florence B. Lord and Richard W. Lord.
