I am delighted to be elected as the President of the Canadian Tamils’ Chamber of Commerce (CTCC), the 30 years strong premiere organization representing the Canadian Tamil business community in Canada.
During the past year, we achieved a milestone in establishing our own business premises with the help of 135 kind hearted sponsors amidst the covid-19 pandemic. Now that we have our own building, my theme during my tenure would be “Beyond Building”.
Primarily I will focus on achieving the objects of the CTCC as laid down in its constitution.
My focus will be to enhance our business community’s knowledge and to create awareness and knowledge in investing in shares, bonds, mutual funds, exchange traded funds, options, futures, commodities, forex to the newly evolving cryptocurrencies. Further, information support will be provided to our business community to avenues of capital funding via capital markets or alternative investment markets.
I will continue to focus on promoting charitableness and volunteerism in the community by way of traditional Walkathons to the new norm of Radiothons. I am eager to introduce and expand on the concept of charitable giving by way of wills.
I expect our Board and our membership to stand in solidarity in achieving the above and to guide the Chamber to greater heights during my Presidency.
