The Filipino Heritage Society of Montreal
The Filipino Heritage month is fast approaching and we are reaching out to our fellow Filipino Canadians across Canada to share our support to promote our common values and traditions by joining us to celebrate Filipino Heritage. The Filipino Heritage Society of Montreal wishes to take this opportunity to invite you to our virtual celebration on June 1st (Tuesday) 7 PM. The Philippine Ambassador Rodolfo D. Robles will be our honoured guest speaker for the evening.
Your presence is important to us. Despite of the pandemic and the distance within us, we should show our “Bayanihan” spirit in our adopted country Canada.

Note from the Editor: The month of June marks Filipino Heritage Month in Canada. This gives an opportunity to highlight the valuable contributions people of Filipino origin have made to the social, economic, political, and cultural fabric of Canada.
We’re grateful for MP Salma Zahid’s (Scarborough-Centre) private Member’s Motion M-155 which was passed unanimously by the House of Commons in November 2018. With the passage of this motion, every June going forward will be officially celebrated as Filipino Heritage Month across Canada.
