National Alliance of Philippine Women of Canada (NAPWC)

Description

The National Alliance of Philippine Women in Canada (NAPWC) was formed in 2002 as a mechanism for national coordination for education, research advocacy and capacity building to address the priority areas for the Filipino-Canadian community’s participation and involvement. A non-profit organization, it was borne out of the national consultation of Filipino-Canadian women in 1999 in Vancouver, B.C. It is the national coordinating body that unites and guides the works of the Philippine Women Centre (PWC) in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec. Among its mandate and general objectives are to:

Advance the struggle of Filipinos in Canada, particularly among women, for equality, peace and genuine development;
Develop national programs to enhance the community’s full participation in the civic, social and political life of Canada;
Conduct community based studies and research on the Filipino community that would help empower and develop capacity building skills in the community;
Help strengthen the member organizations’ capabilities in community organizing, research, education and mobilization
