Paglalayag: the Philippines to Canada Journey chronicles the stories of migration, and the lives of Filipinos in Alberta.
Paglalayag is the Filipino word for voyage or journey. This documentary relates the stories of Filipinos: those who arrived in the 1960s: the teachers; nurses; caregivers; temporary foreign workers; the contributions and achievements; and the importance of heritage with Filipino-Canadians.
