TURKISH CULTURE AND FOLKLOR SOCIETY OF CANADA
TKFD was founded in 1976.
In the first years, a folklore team was formed. The folk dances performed by this team for many years after the it was set up.
Later on, a group of Anatolian Folk Dancers who left the Association set up their own team and continued their folklore studies separately.

In the 90's Caravan Festival in Toronto, the Istanbul Pavilion has been represented and exhibited by our association for many years.
Since the day we were established as TKFD, we are trying to introduce Turkish culture and traditions to Canada.
We've also been establishing the Turkish Pavilion at the Carassauga Festival in the city of Mississauga in the last 12 years.
Our association has been celebrating most of our national and religious festivals every year since from the beginning.
Also April 23 National Sovereignty and International Children's Festival and the foundation date of our Republic Day is celebrated annually by the authorization of recognition from the Ontario Parliament.
Our association also performs commemorative ceremony with respect to MUSTAFA KEMAL ATATURK every November 10th.
