The Tibetan Association of Alberta is a non-profit organization of Tibetans in the province of Alberta with the majority of its members residing in the city of Calgary. It’s mission is to preserve, foster and promote the rich and unique Tibetan culture and heritage not only within the Tibetan community but also with the Canadian community at large under the leadership of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
In 1972, the Tibetan Community of Alberta (TCA) was formed to provide a spiritual and cultural home for the Tibetans living in Alberta. In 1977, the TCA was formally registered and incorporated as a non-profit organization under the Societies Act in the province of Alberta.
Tashi Delek everyone,As India is grappling with unprecedented healthcare tragedy amid the second wave of COVID-19, the Central Tibetan Administration has urged all Tibetans to donate to the PM CARES FUND, Prime Minister’s Emergency Relief Fund, to show our solidarity with the people and the Government of India. CTA officials and staff are contributing their one-day salary to the PM CARES FUND and similarly Tibetan communities across the world are requested to immediately begin collecting donations and send them to the respective Office of Tibet by May 6, 2021.Hence, TAA is urging all Tibetans to donate, any amount in one’s capacity, to help our Indian brothers and sisters in their toughest times. We have created two options to donate:
1) Online via Interac e-transfer to TAA account at email@example.com and please mention ‘DONATION TO COVID-INDIA’ on the Comment section,
2) In person donation – TAA executive will collect donations at Chikhang (2339 16A Street SE) on Sunday, May 2nd from 10 AM – 6 PM. All donations must be sent to TAA before May 5, 2021 in order for us to forward the donations to the Office of Tibet by May 6, 2021. Thank you.

Please see below announcement from Depart of Finance, CTA regarding Online payment option for Chatrel (Greenbook) contribution called EChatrel. “Dept of Finance, CTA started the Chatrel Online Project Named EChatrel In June 2020. The Project is going as per the Timeline so far and CTA is hoping to Launch the project Live by March-April, 2021. CTA is excited that finally Tibetan people will be able to pay their annual Chatrel online without having to do it Manually. CTA has chosen North America as the Pilot region so we will be the first one to experience the online Chatrel Payment! CTA plans to launch the project in other regions if the project proves to be successful in North America. The Project is in the Development stage and CTA needs our cooperation to move forward. One of the first steps for any user to pay online would be to go through the Authentication Process, for that every user needs a google account (gmail address). CTA requested Tibetan people across North America to fill up and submit a google form which asks for our. -Greenbook number, Date of Birth and Gmail address. Once CTA receives these credentials from as many Tibetan as possible , they are going to validate it and input it into the database, so that everyone could have a smooth authentication Process when they actually go to do Chatrel Payment online later in April.
