Migrating to a new country can be
an overwhelming experience. Adjusting to
the place, different foods, finding a school
for your children, finding a job, or a
house, and several other issues can be
That’s where Tholil steps in. This education, business, and volunteer - themed expo
will help new Tamil immigrants meet
several people from different
industries under one roof. But what are
some of the most important areas that people need help with?
Finding a school for your children can be the single most difficult issue that you might face as new immigrant parents. Coping with school, finding the right classes, or finding a daycare for your children are some of the initial glitches that parents might face. Heading to an expo that will connect you to teachers, schools, and educators is a smart thing to do. And if you're thinking about advancing your own skills then connecting with varoius colleges and trade schools can provide an additional boost to your career outlook!
2. Work Force:
Finding work in a new country can be time consuming. Connecting with the right people is one of the easiest ways to find your dream job. Whether you are changing your career paths or are looking to explore newer avenues, networking is important, especially when you have children to cater to. At The Tholil Expo, we'll have companies from various industries like real estate, banking, foods and hospitality, manufacturing, healthcare and education who are actively hiring and looking to recruit from within the Tamil community. So make sure your bring your CV with you!
3. Connecting with your community:
In a new country, it becomes imperative for you to connect with your community. A feeling of being home and sharing your cultural similarities is a good way to not feel homesick and build your own circle of friends. Children get to make new friends. The fear of bullying and aggression can be easily dealt with when you have friends by your side.
4. Financial aid:
How do we manage our funds? Where can one invest? How difficult is it to obtain a mortgage or where can one buy a house are some common queries that people have in a new country. New parents are also managing their finances especially saving in terms of their children's future. Tholil will introduce you to many resources available to solve your financial issues.
5. Giving back:
Many Tamilians who have migrated to Canada as their new home came so through of seeking refugee status due to the civil war in Sri Lanka. Others came backed on their academic and professional skillsets but everyone still has an obligation to give back with either their time, talents or resources to help those who are still in unfortunate circumstances. At The Tholil Expo, we'll be hosting a number of Tamil-run non-profits and charities who all work in different spaces, tackling different issues but all with the common goal of finding ways to get together and give back!
The Tholil Expo can be helpful in all areas especially for new immigrant parents who are looking to connect, network, and grow. The expo is taking place on Saturday, May 30, 2020, at the Edward Hotel at 185 Yorkland Blvd, North York, ON M2J 4R2. Tickets are up for sale!
