04 September 2015 - Philippine Ambassador to Canada Petronila P. Garcia undertook an Official Visit to St. Johns, Newfoundland and Labrador from August 24 to 26. The Ambassador was accompanied by a consular team from the Philippine Embassy in Ottawa, led by Minister and Consul Flerida Ann Camille P. Mayo.

 

In the course of her visit, the Ambassador met with top officials of the provincial government of Newfoundland & Labrador, including Lt. Governor Frank F. Fagan and Mrs. Mary Patricia Fagan, the Mayor of St. John’s Dennis O’Keefe & Councilor Tom Hann, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs and Deputy Government House Leader Keith Hutchings, and Deputy Speaker and Chair of Committees Glenn Littlejohn.

Ambassador Garcia also held a meeting with officials of the Fisheries and Marine Institute of the Memorial Industry of Newfoundland. The Institute has several projects in the Philippines in the field of Marine conservation, and also with the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) in the area of education.

 

Newfoundland and Labrador is home to more than a thousand Filipino-Canadians who have made the province their home. Most are working in the medical, engineering, and accounting professions and have established their families in this Atlantic province. There are also around two hundred temporary workers in the service sector. Being a port city, many ships manned by Filipino seafarers dock in the port of St. John’s, and the commercial establishments of the city cater to the needs of the crewmembers who are on their R and R.

 

Ambassador Garcia met with the Filipino community in Newfoundland and Labrador and took the opportunity to update the community on the developments back home in the Philippines and the projects of the Embassy. END
