We are very sad to inform you that Srigugan Sriskandaraja, one of the founding presidents and long-time senior staff and ardent community worker passed away in Toronto, Canada. 


When the second generation of Tamil immigrants started coming to Canada in 1982, Mr. Srigugan Sriskandaraja (Son of former Sri Lankan supreme court justice Late Sriskandaraja) played a major role in obtaining the special status for Tamils to settle in Canada. This paved the way for Tamils to establish themselves as one of the most successful communities in Canada.
