Little Princes & Little Princesses 2016 – FCAV, City of Vaughan
The Filipino-Canadian Association of Vaughan (FCAV) held the coronation of Little Princes / Princesses 2016 at Dufferin Clark Community Centre, City of Vaughan. These young boys and girls raised funds for the security cameras and alarm system at Patricia Kemp Community Centre as well as an electronic sign to inform users the many activities that Filipino-Canadian Association of Vaughan has to offer.
Patricia Kemp Community Centre is leased to the Filipino-Canadian Association of Vaughan by the City of Vaughan for 20 years. It is the Centre of all FCAV’s programs and activities. The facility is also being used by other Filipino associations, various community groups, and the community at large.

On Thursday, May 19, the Filipino-Canadian Association of Vaughan (FCAV) travelled to Ottawa. With the assistance of Michael, Amy and Sack from the Hon. Peter Kent’s office, the group toured Parliament Hill building including the library, standing committee room and observed first-hand how the Members of Parliament questioned each other at the House of Commons. Their debate included Physician Assisted Death and Electoral Reforms.
The group met with Hon. Peter Kent, former Environment Minister; Hon. Jason Kenney, former Minister of National Defense and Minister of Multiculturalism; Senator Tobias Enverga Jr. and Senator Victor Oh. The Speaker of the House also addressed the group.
The group also visited the Tulips in Bloom. The tulips were amazingly gorgeous and came in different colours – yellow, red, pink, purple and white.
FCAV trip to Ottawa was definitely remarkable and they thank the New Horizon for Seniors Program (NHSP) and the Hon. Peter Kent, MP for Thornhill, for making it possible.
Mary Rose was presented a Volunteer Recognition Award by Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua at Vaughan City Hall on April 14, 2016 for her outstanding dedication and contribution to the community particularly to the Filipino-Canadian Association of Vaughan (FCAV). Mary Rose helped organize fundraising events, assisted in the basic computer training courses, and performed clerical work at FCAV’s office.
