The Canada Tibet Committee (CTC) is pleased to host a Public Talk by His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Wednesday, September 7th at Uniprix Stadium. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. The Talk starts at 1:00 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased at or at 1.800.361.4595. Simultaneous interpretation into French will be available.

His Holiness will speak on ‘Global Citizenship through Universal Responsibility,’ a theme chosen to honour last year's decision by the Canadian government to welcome 1,000 displaced-Tibetans living in Arunachal Pradesh, India to Canada over the next five years.

It's rare to organize a Public Talk in a matter of weeks, but with your help we're going to pull off a great event.

At the end of this email you'll find six ways you can help welcome His Holiness to Montreal – and 1,000 Tibetan refugees to Canada – virtually all of them at the click of a mouse.

Project Tibet Society

Proceeds from the Talk will be donated to Project Tibet Society, which is overseeing the resettlement of 1,000 Tibetan refugees living in Arunachal Pradesh, India to Canada.

For a contribution of $1,000 you'll be among the first founding Patrons of Project Tibet Society and will help us resettle 1,000 incredible future citizens of Canada across our country. You and five of your friends will also be our guests at the Public Talk or you can choose to donate the tickets back to the CTC so that we can donate them to local social service agencies.

The CTC has also made special arrangements for issuing charitable tax receipts to Patrons to support the resettlement project. For more information, please contact

Two acts of kindness

If you can't make the Talk or don't live in the Montreal area please consider buying tickets and donating them to the CTC so that we can give them to various social service agencies in the city for worthy Montrealers who might not otherwise be able to afford a ticket.

You can also support the work of the CTC by visiting the Join/Donate page at

In addition to all major credit cards, you can also donate using INTERAC. If you prefer, you can also mail a donation to: Canada Tibet Committee, P.O. Box 217, Place du Parc 2 Station, Montreal QC H2X 4A4.

CTC member/donor discount program

If you are a member or have donated to the CTC in the past two years (up to 30 July 2011), you are eligible for a 10% discount on the first occasion you purchase tickets. Your telephone number serves as the promotion code for this discount and also allows access to the purchase of court level reserved seats for CTC members. The discount does apply to all sections. Contact if you wish to verify your telephone number on file.

We know there were some problems with the system when tickets first went on sale and are satisfied the problem has been fixed, however if you still run into a problem please contact

This program is our way of thanking you again for your support.

Group ticket discounts

Another way to make tickets even more affordable is to consider a group ticket purchase. For every 15 tickets purchased, there's a 15% discount; for every 25 tickets, a 25% discount; and for every 50 tickets, a 35% discount. These discounts may be useful to supporters who don't live in Montreal and are faced with the added cost of transportation. Together there's also the possibility of chartering a mini-bus or approaching Voyageur or VIA for group fare rates.
