Canadian Tamil students celebrate Multicultural Week at York University

Canadian Tamil students at York University Tamil Students Association (YUTSA) marked the university’s 'Multicultural Week', celebrating their Eelam Tamil identity.

The president of the York University Tamil Students Association, Purushothaman Kugarajah, said,

“We should be proud of our identity.  Everything that makes us up we should be proud of, from our flag to our rich language to our cultural attire to the food that we eat." 

"Today we have shown the entire world that we are an ancient, unique and proud Nation with a rich history, heritage and traditions.  Our flag too was flying high and proud”

Organised by the York Federation of Students, the event, held from the 12th February to the 15th February,  included over forty student societies representing their respective national identities.

We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
