For Immediate Release July 9th, 2012
Baltimore, MARYLAND, USA – The Canadian Tamil Congress (CTC) is excited to inform Canadians that on July 5 and 6, 2013, the Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America’s (FeTNA) 26th year convention will be held in Toronto, Canada. This is the first time in its history that the convention will be held outside the USA.
Since 1987, FeTNA has presented a mega event, in a different state and city every year, where Tamils of North America get together, celebrate their culture, enjoy music, dance, and meet various artists and performers from India. FeTNA has grown from just five Sangams to becoming a successful umbrella organization of over 40 Tamil Sangams.
“We congratulate FeTNA on their Silver Jubilee convention” said David Poopalapillai, National Spokesperson for the Canadian Tamil Congress. “This is definitely one of the biggest events of this scale held by Tamils in North America and we are excited to be hosting FeTNA in Toronto in 2013.”
FeTNA is a non-profit, literary, cultural, charitable, and nonpartisan organization that aims to cultivate, promote and foster the advancement of knowledge in Tamil language, history, literature and culture. By providing a platform for Tamil Sangams in the USA and Canada to connect and share resources, FeTNA’s annual convention has become a must-attend event and the highlight of Tamil entertainment in North America.
Ever since becoming a member organization of FeTNA in 2010, CTC has demonstrated its commitment to increasing the awareness and participation in FeTNA conventions. Given the large population of Tamils in Canada, CTC is confident that the 26th Convention in Toronto will prove to be an unprecedented success.
Over the next few months, as CTC communicates the plans for the conference, CTC looks forward to working with Tamil Canadian organizations, businesses and community members to ensure the FeTNA 2013 convention is a grand success.
The Canadian Tamil Congress (CTC) is a non-profit organization which serves as the voice of Tamil Canadians. Headquartered in Toronto, the CTC has chapters across the country and an elected board of directors. The non-partisan organization works as the community’s spokesperson on the municipal, provincial, federal and international levels.
