The Philippine Edmonton Events and Arts Society (PHIDEAS) presents

A tour of canada

through philippine eyes

A virtual event for SALUDO 2021: Canada-Wide Philippine Heritage Month

From the Filipino enclaves of Toronto’s Little Manila, Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant, and Montreal’s Côte-des-Neiges, to cities such as Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg, to more remote towns and villages rarely represented in Canadian literature, writers will use a combination of pictures and literary work to showcase various neighborhoods, parks, landmarks, and other places across Canada, based on their unique perspective as an immigrant, newcomer, migrant worker, or second-generation child of immigrants.

Together, the various narratives from this diverse group of writers will shed light on the successes and challenges of a minority group, reveal systemic barriers faced by immigrant communities, and highlight Canadian heritage, diversity, and multiculturalism through a Filipino lens.
