A Great Canadian Story

On August 11, 1986, local fishermen from St. Mary’s Bay rescued 155 Tamil men, women and children found drifting off the coast of Newfoundland in two lifeboats. These heroic fishermen dumped all their catch of the day and took the refugees on board their fishing vessels until the Canadian coast guard arrived.

This heroic act is symbolic of the generosity and kindness shown by Canada to refugees fleeing persecution in their homelands.

The Canadian Tamil Congress is proud to showcase one of the actual lifeboats that these Tamil refugees were found adrift in a mobile exhibit in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. The TamilJourneys86 Lifeboat will be prominently displayed at various locations during Canada 150 celebrations.
