Tamil Medical Pharmaceutical Association, TMPA, is a Canadian owned, non-profit organization. The organization was formed in 2017 by a group of experienced and skilled professionals in the Pharmaceutical, Medical Device and Biotechnology industries. The team identified a growing need within the Tamil community for an open forum that created opportunities for professionals in the Bioscience industry to network and connect with each other. The group also identified the need to mentor recent graduates about the opportunities available to them within the industry. As a result, TMPA was created. TMPA’s goal is to provide programs and events that will advance the professional development of our members. We have our annual gala coming up and we want to release an article on Tamil culture about it.
