(Victoria, 25 November 2013) – The first of 1,000 displaced Tibetans selected to resettle in Canada will arrive in Toronto and Ottawa on Friday, November 29

"They will be greeted at both airports by private sponsors and Tibet supporters," the Project Tibet Society said.

They are part of a Government of Canada public policy that is facilitating the immigration of up to 1,000 Tibetans living in the state of Arunachal Pradesh in India.

This policy followed a 2007 appeal by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Others selected in the first round will arrive in Vancouver and Victoria on December 14th and in Calgary in January.

Project Tibet Society was founded in 2011, as part of the public policy to oversee the implementation of this project.
