The Philippine Heritage Week was initiated by the Philippine Consulate in 1981. In 1985, the Philippine Consulate was closed down and its functions were assumed by an appointed Honorary Consul who kept the Philippine Heritage celebration alive and vibrant by creating yearly a Philippine Heritage Week Adhoc Committee composed of members representing the different organizations in the community.

In 2003, the Committee was constituted as a formal body that will allow other projects to be conducted during the year, in addition to sponsoring the annual Philippine Heritage Week. The organization is now known as Philippine Heritage Council of Manitoba (PHCM) Inc. which is composed of individuals and representatives from different Filipino-Canadian organizations and associations.


Our vision of a society is one that fosters cultural diversity, social inclusiveness and unity among different sectors – children, youth, women, men and senior citizens – in pursuit of shared goals and aspirations for the enrichment by the many cultures and traditions that surround us that make up the community where we belong for the betterment of Manitoba and for the benefit of the present generation and those to come.


Our mission is to enable Filipino organizations and individuals to promote and share the unique Filipino cultural and natural heritage with Manitobans and the broader society through meaningful partnerships, awareness and capacity building, and cultural exchanges that enhance community welfare and well-being.
