"I truly believe that individuals can make a difference in society. Since periods of great change such as the present one come so rarely in human history, it is up to each of us to make the best use of our time to help create a happier world." - His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, 1992
The Canada Tibet Committee (CTC) is an independent non-governmental organisation of Tibetans and non-Tibetans living in Canada, who are concerned about the continuing human rights violations and lack of democratic freedom in Tibet. It seeks to stop the ongoing destruction of the Tibetan culture, to alleviate the suffering of the Tibetan people and to restore Tibet to its status as an independent state within the family of nations. The Canada Tibet Committee is committed to the principle of non-violence and opposes the use of violence as a means of resolving conflict. The Canada Tibet Committee recognizes the Tibetan Government-in-exile as the leigitimate representative of the Tibetan people.
The Canada Tibet Committee works to achieve its goals by:
* Compiling and distributing current information about Tibet;
* Advocating on behalf of the Tibetan people via outreach campaigns to government, non-governmental organisations, the public and the media;
* Conducting seminars and speaker tours, organizing cultural events and publishing reports;
* Developing the Canada Tibet Committee into a cross-Canada network.
