"We Tibetans are looking for a legitimate and meaningful autonomy, an arrangement that would enable Tibetans to live within the framework of the People’s Republic of China."

Canada's Immigration Minister recognizes Tibetan New Year

February 11, 2013

“Losar is the first day of the Tibetan lunar calendar. This holiday is the most important festival on the Tibetan calendar, a time of renewal, celebration and joyful gatherings with family and community.

“For all Canadians, Losar provides an opportunity to reflect on the tremendous contributions that members of the Tibetan community have made to this country’s rich and diverse heritage.

“As Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, I offer my Losar greetings to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who is an honorary citizen of Canada, and to all others who are celebrating the Tibetan New Year over the next few days. I hope the Year of the Water Snake will bring peace, happiness and prosperity for all.”

Honorable Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration, and Multiculturalism
