PHILIPPINE HERITAGE MONTH
The month of June has been proclaimed as Philippine Heritage Month by the Legislative Assembly of Alberta in June 2018, and by the House of Commons in October 2018, to be celebrated every year.
The same proclamation was also made for the year 2018 by the Cities of Edmonton, Calgary and Fort Saskatchewan.
INTERNATIONAL CENTRE (EPIC)
For many years, the Filipino community in Edmonton has yearned for a Philippine centre. One was established in 1984 but proved to be difficult to sustain. There have been a lot of initiatives since then, and another one most recently. Will this latest one prove to be more tenacious and eventually successful? Only the Filipino community can tell.
