A bit of a history

In 1989 the Canada Tamil Sangam (Tamil Association) and the Tamil community of the Ottawa region from different countries such as Sri Lanka, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Mauritius, and South Africa as a whole felt the need to teach children the Tamil Language. By learning the Tamil Language children will develop important communications as well as an appreciation for the Tamil culture. With this objective the Ottawa-Carleton Tamil School was started in 1989 under the Ministry of Education's Heritage Language Program.Now, it is known as International Language Program of the Ottawa Carleton District School Board. The school had 18 students in its inaugural year. In the beginning, the classes were held at Bell High School, and all of the instructors were volunteers.
