ABOUT

Aksyon Ng Ating Kabataan (ANAK) Inc. is an incorporated non-profit organization comprised of concerned young Filipino-Canadian professionals and students. Drawing from a gamut of personal experiences as immigrants, educators, social workers, researchers, and second-generation Canadians, ANAK aims to bridge the cultural, generational, and social gaps found both in and outside of the Filipino-Canadian community in Winnipeg.

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 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. We strive towards developing Canada’s first extensive Philippine Studies program.
