The Philippines is a country with a deep and rich cultural history, and has been the top country of birth of immigrants in Canada, according to the 2016 Statistic Canada Census. Yet, how much do we know about the Philippines and its people, especially those who have emigrated to Canada and made their home here?
If it is not taught in school, it is hard for our children to know where their families have come from? How do Canadians begin to appreciate the richness embedded in the diversity of their neighbourhoods and among their friends?
“The first step towards cultural harmony starts with understanding and learning about each other’s histories, ” observed Dr Robert Daum, Chair of the Laurier Institution, which has been promoting multiculturalism and diversity in Canada for thirty years. Sponsors, led by the Laurier Institution, decide to enable more school children and teachers to the show.
School teachers can contact PCHC-Museum of Migration Society (firstname.lastname@example.org or 778-636-2368) to obtain tickets for their students they want to bring to the show as a group. Older students are welcome to claim a sponsored ticket online for themselves by using this promo code (XculturalUnity) at: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/philippines-historama-2019-tickets-60504588854#tickets
