The Philippine Cultural Center Foundation (PCCF) is a non-profit organization registered under Societies Act of Alberta on June 13, 1997 by a group of civic-minded Filipino Canadians residing in Calgary, Alberta. PCCF owns and maintains a 2,750 sq. ft. office and facility located in the northeast section of Calgary. With this facility, the PCCF offers programs that celebrate the rich culture and heritage of the Filipino people. With interaction and participation in the community, life is enhanced through the various sets of social, cultural and educational programs and services carefully designed and implemented for the members of the Filipino and the general public.
What is PCCF
The PCCF began on February 6th, 1996. At that time, various leaders within the Filipino community put their dream to acquire a cultural center to call their own into action. After 5 years of hard work, that dream became a reality on Feb 24th, 2001.
Today, the PCCF continues to live and expand its mandate to strengthen and enrich the existing programs for Calgary’s growing Filipino community, specifically the youth, seniors, families, and newcomers.
With the rapid growth of the Filipino population in Calgary, the PCCF continues to pursue plans to acquire a bigger Cultural Center.
Philippine Cultural Center
The Philippine Cultural Center was acquired to provide a central place for various educational and recreational activities for the Filipino community.
Today, different Filipino associations and organizations hold regular activities such as workshops, board meetings, seminars, conferences and celebrations. It is also the venue for all the PCCF programs.
The Philippine Cultural Center is also open for use to all individuals as members and guests, regardless of ethnic origin, nationality, language and gender.
