Tamil Heritage Month Celebration

Hosted by the City of Brampton

Cel​ebrate 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.  

In partnership with the Brampton Tamil Association and the Brampton Tamil Seniors Association​, enjoy live performances, sample traditional cuisine, and learn more about the rich history and culture of the Tamil community.
