Nanaimo Filipino Canadian Association (NAFCA)

Our mission is to unite and support Filipinos and Canadians while making a difference in our community at large.  We take part in fundraising events to help the community in Nanaimo while showcasing Filipino culture.


Nanaimo Filipino Canadian Association (NAFCA) was incorporated in 2014, as we felt this was the best way to make a difference to not only help our children but to give back to our community and to the country that has given us so many great opportunities.

We have supported the Nanaimo Child Development Centre, done annual fundraisers for the children of CDC and have participated in the Silly Boat Regatta for the past 3 years.

NAFCA has helped Canadians learn about our culture as well cultivate many wonderful friendships.

We are proud to call ourselves Canadians, and we thank Canada and the people of Canada, for making a difference in our lives.


To become a member of our organization it will only cost you $5.00 per year.  For this small amount of money you get the following:

  1. Participation in all NAFCA hosted events. (The silly boat regatta is so much fun)
  2. Help newcomers to Canada with assistance, resources and finding employment.
  3. Be a part of an organization that makes a difference in the community through various fundraising events.

And the best part?

You get to still practice your culture, while making new long lasting friends in your new home.
