NGO

Philippine Women Center of BC (PWC-BC)

Paglalarawan

PWC was conceptualized in 1986 by a group of Filipino Canadian women, including domestic workers, connected with the BC Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines (BCCHRP).

The group was organizing in the Vancouver area to gain a deeper understanding of the Filipino community, particularly about the situation of the increasing number of Filipino domestic workers whose presence in Canada they saw as an urgent human rights issue.

PWC believes that the migration of Filipino domestic workers in Canada has roots in the political and economic crisis in the Philippines.

PWC members recognized the need to study, organize, and act on the issue and deepen the understanding of women's struggles in the Philippines, Canada, and the world. Through the efforts of six Filipino women, the PWC was formally launched in February 1990.

PWC aims to empower Filipino women to understand the roots of their challenges as migrants, immigrants, women of colour and low-income earners, and to collectively assert their struggle for their rights and welfare.
