On June 26 at 6P PT, MYX, TFC and the Philippine Legacy and Cultural Alliance (PLACA) presented “All for One,” in celebration of Canadian Multiculturalism Day. The Fil-Canadian community celebrated unity and diversity at All For One, hosted by actor/comedian/writer, Isabel Kanaan. Watch highlights of the event below:
Each year, Canada celebrates Canadian Multiculturalism Day to honor and appreciate the wealth and diversity of Canadian society. This year’s celebration marks a special milestone as it is the 50th year since Canada adopted the Multiculturalism Policy, being the first country in the world to do so.
At last year’s Canadian Multiculturalism Day, the Honourable Bardish Chagger, Minister of Diversity, Inclusion and Youth of Canada, underlined that “In Canada, diversity is our strength, and Multiculturalism Day is an opportunity to appreciate that we are strong not in spite of our differences, but because of them.”
“All For One” put the spotlight on Filipino heritage and culture in a show headlined by dancer/singer/actress AC Bonifacio, Pinoy Pop boy group BGYO, Pinoy Pop girl group BINI, Vancouver-based R&B singer Glisha, singer/actress Kayla Rivera, Toronto’s fantastic four-rIVerse, Toronto-based Filipino hip hop artists - Southeast Cartel, and Asia’s Pop Heartthrob Darren Espanto.
The celebration also showcases the exceptional talents of our Filipino Canadian artists. Watch some of the performances below:
