TCC is looking for dedicated and experienced volunteers to be Committee Members

Thank you for your support of the Tamil Community Centre (TCC) over the past three years. Because of you, we have been able to find a suitable location at 311 Staines Road, secure $26.3M in government funding, release a pre-design of the building, and become a registered charity in Canada.

With these major hurdles behind us, we are now turning our attention to programming, governance, and fundraising. We are setting up Committees to help TCC be successful in each of these areas. But we need your help. We are looking for committed and experienced volunteers who can join these Committees and give at least five hours of their time a week. Please find Terms of Reference for each Committee at the links below.

Communications Committee

We want to keep everyone up to date on the project as often as possible. We are looking for writers for our email blasts and news releases, social media content creators, graphic designers, and people who can translate English materials to Tamil.

Fundraising Committee

We have to raise $9.6M from the community. We received $11.2M in pledges when we applied for government funding. Now it’s time to turn those pledges from the community, business, and individual donors into real dollars.

Governance Committee

A much anticipated topic, we need to put together a consultation plan for the community to engage in on what governance structure for the community could look like. The consultation needs to take place this summer.

User Committee

We’re going to refine our programming and services for the community centre by meeting with different community organizations who serve groups like seniors, youth, LGBTQ2S individuals, and women. We will also need support in engaging in a formal consultation process with the City of Toronto.
