What is ATI Foundation? 

ATI Foundation is a nonprofit cross-disability organization that empowers Canadian Tamils with disabilities to realize their potential and achieve their goals. We provide a nexus of support for both the Canadian Tamils, who face challenges with mental and physical conditions, but also their caregivers, who are often in need of respite and supportive care.
