May 2015 is marking the sixth anniversary of the very tragic and traumatic events that took place in Sri Lanka. Leading up to May 19, 2009, tens of thousands of people lost their lives. Many Tamil Canadians, including the Tamils living in our city, lost family members during the violent events which has left a painful indelible scar in our hearts. During the month of May every year from 2009, all Tamils world over remember with deep sorrow the victims who lost their lives and those who were maimed during this dark period in our history.

We, the undersigned, remember the victims who lost their lives and those who were maimed.

A WEEK OF REMEMBRANCE - MAY 11th to MAY 18th

We are declaring a week of remembrance for the victims to be observed between May 11, 2015 and May 18, 2015 to mark this tragic part of our history.

REMEMBRANCE EVENT - THURSDAY, MAY 14, 2015

During this week we organize a remembrance event. This year, the remembrance event will be held on the Thurssday, 14th of May, 2015. We shall be conducting a multi-faith prayer to remember the victims.
