One has to know joy and pain to recognize happiness and misfortune


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.
