About Us

History

The Philippine Independence Day Council (“PIDC”) is a non-profit umbrella

organization of hundreds of Filipino-Canadian provincial, regional, professional, cultural

and social organizations. PIDC is mainly tasked with the celebration of Philippine

Independence Day with numerous activities throughout the year that bring together the

third largest minority group in Canada.

PIDC began as a committee whose chair was elected annually by representatives

of various Filipino-Canadian associations. To ensure smooth transition and provide

continuity in its activities, PIDC was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1997.

PIDC is also a member of the Canadian Multicultural Council of Asians in Ontario

(“CMC”) and Festivals and Events Ontario (“FEO”).

Mandate

PIDC endeavors to foster unity within the Filipino-Canadian community by showcasing

Philippine heritage and culture to mainstream society. In addition, PIDC actively

participates in events that bring together other ethnic backgrounds to develop mutual

awareness and appreciation for people from all parts of the world.

Objectives

Every year, PIDC manages numerous activities that complement their mandate. It continues its tradition of honouring Filipino tradition and brings forward various contributions of groups and individuals to the consciousness of mainstream society. It does so by working together with other organizations that may or may not have previous knowledge or experience with Philippine culture and its people.
