Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women Leela Aheer issued the following statement to recognize Philippine Heritage Month in Alberta:

“Our government is honoured to recognize Philippine Heritage Month and the contributions of Filipino Albertans to our province. June 12 marks the day when their nation of islands declared independence from Spain and the Republic of the Philippines was born.

“Our province is blessed to have the second largest Filipino population in Canada. The dedication and hard work of Filipinos in Alberta have played an important role in Alberta’s economy and in our communities for generations.

“No earthquake, volcanic eruption, typhoon or tsunami can wash away the resilient spirit and generosity of the Filipino people. We can all admire the strong value Filipinos place on family and community.

“I encourage everyone to learn more about our Filipino neighbours as we celebrate their heritage this month. Together, we look forward to a future in which Filipino Albertans continue to be part of the vibrant culture of our province.”
