Bringing the people together, no matter the age or distance, to build a stronger and more enlightened community
What we’re doing
Vasantham Tamil Wellness Centre recognizes the collective challenges that the Tamil community faces. We hope to bring awareness, work together with the community to find solutions, and bring Tamil Canadians together to support each other and build a stronger community.

Previous topics include drug overdose among youth, domestic/sexual violence towards Tamil women, and many more.
