This first-of-its-kind symposium aims to fill the research gap on Filipinos in Canada. Leading scholars will convene to address the absence of academic and policy discussions on Filipinos in Canada, the third largest non-European ethnic group in the country.
"The symposium was developed out of a community need to fill the research gap on Filipinos in Canada," says Dr. Roland Sintos Coloma, a faculty member in Sociology and Equity Studies in Education and the only Filipino professor at the University of Toronto. He adds, "It will be a groundbreaking gathering. It will bring together a critical mass of scholars throughout Canada, for the first time, to develop a national academic platform for Filipino Canadian Studies."
The symposium is free and open to the public. It is organized by Kritikal Kolektibo, a group of faculty and graduate students interested in Filipino Studies at the University of Toronto.
