Invitation to the CALIPER Project- McMaster Children's Hospital

To the Hamilton Filipino Community, 

My name is Olivia Virag and I am a project coordinator for CALIPER, a
nationwide health initiative at McMaster Children's Hospital. The project
started at SickKids Hospital in Toronto and has expanded into other
pediatric centers across Canada. To date, we have had over 7200 children
participate in the project with over 1000 of them just in the Hamilton area

CALIPER's main goals are to improve the diagnosis and treatment of children
within Canada. We are developing reference intervals to find out what is
healthy and normal among our pediatric population. To help find accurate
information, we have developed relationships with various cultures and
ethnicities within the Hamilton community and would love the chance for the
children of the Filipino community to take part!   

I would love a chance to meet with you to discuss this opportunity further.
I am available any time this week at your convenience. Please visit our
website, <> , for more
information. Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to
your response. 

Warm regards, 


Olivia Virag, Hons. B.A. 

Project Coordinator, CALIPER

The Prime Minister of Canada on Philippine Independence Day



Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on Philippine Independence Day

June 12, 2013
London, United Kingdom

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the followingstatement on the celebration of Philippine Independence Day: 


“Today, I extend my best wishes to Filipino-Canadians and all those around the world celebrating the 115th anniversary of Philippine Independence Day.

“Canada has a strong and active Filipino community of nearly 500,000 people, and it continues to grow. The Philippines is one of the largest source countries for immigrants in Canada, and Tagalog is Canada’s fastest growing language.

“Canada’s Filipino community contributes immensely to our country in all areas of endeavour. In particular, in September 2012, I was proud to appoint Mr. Tobias C. Enverga Jr. as Canada’s first Senator of Filipino heritage.

“On behalf of the Government of Canada, I wish all celebrants a happy Philippine Independence Day. I also encourage Canadians to learn more about our country’s vibrant Filipino community.”

PM to visit the Philippines and Hong Kong
Topic: Bilateral Trade

October 31, 2012
Ottawa, Ontario

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today announced that he will travel to the Philippines and Hong Kong from November 10-11, 2012.  The visits will take place immediately following the Prime Minister’s six-day visit in India from November 3-9. He will be accompanied by Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, Joe Oliver, Minister of Natural R 

“Canada’s relations with the Philippines continue to grow and diversify, aided by an increasingly important Canada-Filipino community,” said Prime Minister Harper.  “On this trip, I look forward to exploring ways of further strengthening ties between both countries.”

While in Manila on November 10, the Prime Minister will meet with Benigno Simeon Aquino III, President of the Philippines, to discuss bilateral trade and investment, security cooperation and regional issues. He will also partake in local cultural and community events.

On November 11, the Prime Minister will travel to Hong Kong where he will meet with Chun-ying Leung, Chief Executive of the Special Administrative Region, with a view to further strengthening an already deep and historical relationship.  He will also participate in a Remembrance Day ceremony and pay special tribute to Canadians who died defending Hong Kong during the Second World War.
“Canada and Hong Kong enjoy a rich, multifaceted relationship, strengthened by strong people to people ties,” said Prime Minister Harper. “This visit will serve to advance bilateral commercial ties and reaffirm Canada’s support for democratic development in the Special Administrative Region.”

Canada is greatly enriched by citizens with ties to the countries being visited. The Philippines is now the top source of immigrants to Canada, with nearly 500,000 people of Filipino origin now residing in the country. Canada is also home to 500,000 individuals of Hong Kong descent.  Hong Kong has the largest concentration of Canadians abroad next to the United States.

An open letter from Consul-General JUNEVER MAHILUM-WEST



From: junever mahilum-west [
Sent: June 13, 2012 2:18 PM
Subject: Thank-you letter

Dear Bonner and Dodong (Cabilan),


I felt glad and proud when I and my colleagues in the Consulate General shared in the festivity of your Independence Day Ball and met the members of the Filipino community in Hamilton.  Your efficiency -- I fully agree with your arrangement of having all of Filcom join in one big Independence Day commomeration --  discipline and patriotic fervor are an inspiration to us all.


I look forward to productive and meaningful working relations with your group.  Rest assured that the door of your Consulate-General in Toronto is open to all our kababayans for whatever consular needs they may have.


I would have loved to respond immediately that, yes, I could join the golf game but the Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila has asked all Heads of Posts in Canada and the U.S. to be in Manila for consulations at that week. So I have to send my regrets at this time but I am looking forward to future opportunities when I could enjoy with you the beautiful greens of Canada, and thusly inspired, would at last be blessed with an improvement in my game.

With my best personal regards to you and your family, Mr. and Mrs. Cabilan, the HFCC and its 10 supporting organizations, and to all our kababayans and Filcom friends in Hamilton.


Very truly yours,

Consulate General of the Philippines

Dr. Romulo Anastasio
Topic: Family Doctor


The College of Physicians and Surgeons, like the College of Teachers try to act upon complaints swiftly, giving out penalties even before the physician or teacher is given due process in the court of law. Very often, the reputation of the accused is forever tarnished.


Dr. Romulo Anastasio is an excellent family physician, one of the best in Hamilton. He has cared for my family for many years and we will continue to put our health care in his very capable hands.  We find him very thorough and professional in dealing with his patients.


Two years ago, he was even nominated as one of the best physicians in the city in the Readers Choice Awards given by the Hamilton Spectator and no one complained then. It will be very unfortunate if we lose a very good and dedicated doctor due to this article.
