Aksyon Ng Ating Kabataan (ANAK) Inc. is an incorporated non-profit organization comprised of concerned young Filipino-Canadian professionals and students.

The word “anak” itself is Tagalog for “my child” or “son / daughter.” ANAK is comprised of the sons and daughters of Winnipeg’s early wave of Filipino-Canadian immigrants. It also represents a growing number of immigrant children and youth. We envision a future where all Filipino-Canadians have the opportunity to share, learn, and preserve their transnational culture and heritage through education.
