Vision

We envision an organization with an inclusive membership, united in fellowship, founded on the principles of justice, sensitivity, accountability, transparency and responsibility.

We envision a network of individuals and families deeply grounded in a firm determination to participate meaningfully in society, to grow as members and leaders and to promote the cultural values that make Filipino-Canadians unique in the world.

We envision a community of Filipino-Canadians whose rich cultural heritage, proud history, common aspirations, diverse stories and distinct gifts serve as the framework for local action, national involvement and international outreach.

To enhance our capability to contribute meaningfully to the continuing development of Canada and the Philippines, we passionately subscribe to the principles of:
1) fulfilling teamwork among officers, members, staff and volunteers, to the value of self-advocacy;
2) to the requirements of functional cooperation with various levels of government and other groups in areas relevant to our mission and vision; and
3) to the rudiments of popular participation on the part of our internal and external stakeholders;

To achieve our mission as a community of Filipino-Canadians determined to make an impact now and in the years to come, we commit ourselves to the establishment and maintenance of the KALAYAAN CULTURAL COMMUNITY CENTRE. that will serve as a focal point for the celebration of our culture and history as well as the enjoyment of a wide spectrum of programs and services.
