Tamils in Toronto gathered to commemorate Maaveerar Naal, the Tamil National Remembrance Day at several events in Canada's largest city throughout the week.
The main event at Markham Fairgrounds saw thousands of people stream through the venue all day. The event was held at three separate times on the day, in order to allow as many people as possible to pay their respects.
Tamil students associations organised events at several universities while the Tamil Youth Organisation held a "Youth" Maaveerar Naal on Saturday.
