Dear Members of CTYA:On behalf of the Mayor and the members of Council, it is my pleasure to invite you to the official unveiling of the Sign for historic Vanni Street in the City of Markham on Saturday, May 11, 2013 10:00 AM at the site located on 14th Ave, between Middlefield Rd and Markham Rd.
Vanni is the name given to the mainland area of the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. It covers the entirety of Mannar, Mullaitivu and Vavuniya Districts, and most of Kilinochchi District, and has an area of approximately 7,650 square kilometres (2,950 sq mi). Vanni is one of the most fertile regions in Sri Lanka, known for its biodiversity, water resources, extensive natural forests comprising the largest conservation area. The economy is mainly driven by Agriculture. It is popularly known as the garden basket of Sri Lanka, providing paddy and produce for the entire island. Historically, it was the Capital of Jaffna Kingdom. The name is believed to be derived from Vanniar – chiefs who ruled Jaffna.
Thank you for all the support so far, I look forwards to seeing you at this important event, to mark yet another milestone reached for Canadian Tamil Community. Please feel free to share this among your contacts. Thank you.
