Our President Mr. David Rajaratnam
‘Our association was formed only eight years ago to cater to the needs of Tamils living in Brampton and registered as a Not for Profit Organisation (Registred as INC.ON.No.1917223 Estd 2013). This was due to efforts of a handful of Seniors who worked extra hard, in achieving this goal. The credit goes, especially to our former President Dr.Rathakrishnan who was the cornerstone of BTSA and with his team, the foundation was laid six years back.
I am privileged to be the current President of this young, fast-growing, highly ambitious association which goes strength to strength in providing help and support to build a better community for Seniors.
‘Our current membership is over 450 energy: seniors.
It is my duty to thank members of our community, young and old, Board of Directors past and present and volunteers who have inspired the rest of the community and worked tirelessly in making our association serve the purpose. Many times we exceeded the expectation of our community members.
We, not only serve the Seniors but encourage interaction between seniors and youth, community volunteerism, Youth training etc. of members of Brampton and neighbouring communities, We meet every Monday & Tuesday at the Gore Meadow Community Centre for regular socialization of Seniors, who are otherwise isolated and lonely, and conduct yoga, line dance, keyboard classes and computer classes. We sincerely thank the Mayor of Brampton, Members of both Parliaments, Councillors and the Management of Gore meadow Community Centre for making this a reality for our community Seniors.
We are very fortunate, blessed and thankful to have financial support from New Horizon For Seniors, Ontario Seniors Community program and the City of Brampton, to enhance our service to the community Seniors further and educate them on Elder abuse, Social participation, mental health, How to Better their quality of life, build confidence and perform cultural dances in public, mentoring and volunteerism,and_use of computer as a communication tool, I thank the organizers of the Carabram and CTR for affording the facilities to be a part of the grand celebration in Brampton and in Markham.
