Building a Bridge, Defining and Encouraging the Community

Thursday, February 26, 2009
6:00pm – 10:00pm
University of Toronto – William Doo Auditorium
45 Willcocks Street, Toronto (map)
(close to Spadina and Harbord)

The State of the Filipino Union (SOFU) Forum will be a one evening event, in which influential representatives from the Filipino community in and around the Toronto/GTA will come together and discuss the current state of Philippine descendants and residents in Ontario.

Held during the University of Toronto’s “Filipino Awareness Week”, it will be a non-partisan forum uniting (for one night) all those who wish to be united. It will hope to address the key issues prevalent and relevant to all Filipinos in Ontario today. Organized principally by the younger generation of Filipinos in Toronto, it looks to touch on topics just as relevant to young Filipinos as anyone else, since we are, undoubtedly, the present and the future of our community. SOFU ultimately hopes to foster communication while defining and encouraging the Filipino community at large in Ontario.

There will also be:
A Tabling market with Local Entrepreneurs

AND ITS FREE! No Cover No Charge, Just simply walk in on your own.
