To mark the event this year, we will hold a solemn day of reflection to acknowledge the suffering the people endured. We request our fellow Tamils to join us to collectively light candles, lay flowers, and to give back with a pledge of cash donation in memory of all those who have lost their lives.

As a way of giving back to our fellow Tamils in Sri-Lanka, we are encouraging the community to come out in large numbers and to donate cash. All cash donations collected will be handed to the International Medical Health Organization Canada (IMHO Canada).
NCRTA has been a long standing benefactor of IMHO Canada. IMHO Canada is a charitable, humanitarian, non-political organization which is administered and managed entirely by volunteers. Over the years and with specific request from NCRTA, IMHO Canada has engaged in relief and development work in Sri Lanka.
All cash donations of $20 and over will receive tax receipts from IMHO Canada.
At the conclusion of the event, the flowers laid in memory of the victims will be set afloat at Black Rapids Creek near Fallowfield and Prince of Wales.
