10june2012-002Dharamshala:  The Tibetan Cultural Society of British Columbia (TCS of BC) based in Vancouver have voted at a membership meeting to sponsor the Tibetan resettlement program. They are the only Tibetan Cultural Society in Canada till date to do so.

 

Tashi Tsetan, the Society's President said, "We are extremely fortunate that our membership has decided to support this very important program. As

Tibetans we are indeed fortunate to help facilitate an initiative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama."

The Tibetan Resettlement Program was announced by The Honourable Mr Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration in December of 2010. Under this program the Canadian government will facilitate the safe immigration of 1,000 Tibetans from Arunachal Pradesh in India. This was done at the request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Tibetans groups within Canada.

The 1,000 immigrants will be moved to Canada over a five year period. A number of people from the Tibetan community within Canada have undertaken sponsorship of the migrants. They have gained support from other groups as well.

The program is also trying to branch out into two other cities, Toronto and Calgary. Tashi Tsetan hoped that the regional Tibetan Cultural Societies would help in sponsoring the migrant Tibetans in order for the project to be a complete success.
