Celebrate Tamil Heritage Month!
January is recognized as Tamil Heritage Month in Canada. It is time to reflect on the rich history, culture, resiliency, and strength of Tamil communities across the country.
Canada is home to one of the largest Tamil diasporas in the world, and Canadians of Tamil heritage have been instrumental in making it the country it is today.
Celebrate with us at City Hall on Sunday, January 28, from 2 to 5 pm.
