Metro Vancouver Philippine Arts & Culture Exposition Society (MV-PACES)

The Metro Vancouver Philippine Arts & Cultural Exposition Society (MV-PACES) was incorporated under the Society Act of British Columbia, with registration No. S58044, on March 23, 2011. The board is composed of seven (7) founding directors with expertise in various professional fields, i.e. Architectural/Engineering, Marketing and Business Development, Legal, Manpower Training, Cultural Arts, Music & Entertainment, and Community development. Organized in the North Shore, MV-PACES came into being in 2006 as the Metro Vancouver Philippine Independence Day Council (MV-PIDC) with its main thrust of spearheading the commemorative celebration of Philippine Independence Day every second Sunday of June.

When the community event has grown to include the participation of Filipino communities in various cities of the lower mainland, including representation from neighboring islands and across the border in Washington, the Board sought a change of name and decided to incorporate as a society to better serve the growing community of Filipino Canadians, and be able to engage in several other activities other than the annual Independence day celebration.

MV-PACES today hopes to develop the growing Filipino community of Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, now the third largest visible minority in the province, to be an active and productive influence in the Canadian multicultural society.

MISSION STATEMENT

The METRO VANCOUVER PHILIPPINE ARTS & CULTURAL EXPOSITION SOCIETY is committed to providing the Filipino Canadian community with meaningful activities which will serve to preserve the Philippines’ rich cultural heritage and the values for which the Filipinos are known and respected around the world.

VISION STATEMENT

Our vision is to provide meaningful programs and activities, as well as cultural events aimed for the continuous development of the Filipino values of Faith in God, close family ties, hardworking attitude and job resiliency, and geared towards working together for a cohesive and productive Filipino Canadian community.

OUR GOAL

With more than 160,000 Filipino Canadians in the entire province of British Columbia, MV-PACES’ objective is to reach this growing population by way of various events and activities that will endeavor to facilitate multicultural integration and help create an active, strong and respected Filipino Canadian community in British Columbia through quality programs that are informative, educational, entertaining and productive to society.
