Philippine Ambassador to Canada Maria Andrelita S. Austria hosted a town hall meeting at the Holiday Inn on Saturday, April 6, 2024.

During this meeting with some members of Manitoba’s Filipino community, she expressed her observation that while Filipinos in Canada are occupying some of the most important jobs in Canadian society, “Our community was very much felt but we’re not seen, nor heard.”
