The Canadian Friends of Tel Aviv University is a registered charitable organization headquartered in Montreal. Founded several decades ago by leading Canadian philanthropists, the Association's primary mission is to raise critical funds for the University. 


The Association holds activities designed to encourage Canadian youth to study in one of TAU's many international programs, and to familiarize Canadians with the outstanding scholarship taking place at Tel Aviv University. Events range from gala evenings to parlor receptions, and include symposia and film festivals.
