On November 25th the Tamil Youth Organization (TYO) Canada, in partnership with the Tamil Students' Associations (TSAs) from several universities, held a “Commencement of Tamil Eelam Remembrance week” event in Scarborough to mark Maaveerar Naal.
Dances and songs were performed, speeches and poems were read out and flowers were laid in tribute to the thousands who have died in the Tamil struggle.
Throughout November, several of the Canadian Tamil Students' Associations also held campus-based events marking Maaveerar Naal.
