CTYA is a non-profit organization and is the largest combination of youth associations and groups nationwide with Tamil heritage, culture and language backgrounds. Through the alliance, CTYA strives to empower youth to become outstanding leaders and citizens in our society.

The Top Talents Awards Gala was initiated in order to uphold this mission of youth empowerment. Through this Awards Gala, CTYA will be celebrating the many Top Talents within Canadian Tamil youth. This event will not only recognize individuals for their excellence in their respective fields, but it will also serve as a ceremony of inspiration whereby other individuals will also get encouraged to pursue and showcase their own talents.

The Top Talents Awards Gala is a great avenue where Canadian Tamil youth will be commended for their hard work and it serves as an encouragement for the youth to excel and follow their dreams. High achievements in the fields of Arts, Academics, Athletics, and Achievement categories will be recognized along with an open category. CTYA will be presenting each winner with a $500 bursary to acknowledge and motivate youth so that they develop as individuals and grow to become role models and leaders within the community.

Last year, over 370 people, both youth and community members alike attended the event. Many youth icons also attended the event: Senthamil Stefi, WessTigga Athavan Anbalagan, Steve Cliff, Lenin Sivam, Vinsia Maharajah, Kokilan Maheswaran, Keerthana Pathmanathan, Rajeev Tha Prophecy, Eindui Thulasi Nanthakumaran, Jena K. Siva, Sarika Navanathan, Boywonder Anoojan Vijayasri, Sanjeev Jayasingam, Menan Nagulendran, Arun Vigneswarajah and Pushpalingam Kandavanam all joined the celebrations. CTYA recognized these youth icons in the community with plaques. Fans were very excited to see all the stars come together. Seeing so many youth icons further highlighted the talented youth we have in the Tamil community.
