The name “Golden Balangay” was chosen so that the future generations of Filipinos will recognize the invaluable contribution of their forefathers in shaping the country’s maritime tradition and in passing on the values of solidarity, harmony, determination, courage and bravery.

Aside from stirring up historical consciousness, the Golden Balangay Awards will symbolize our priceless journey as migrants and carrying our people today to their cherished goals.

The Golden Balangay Awards aims to promote excellence, hard work, higher education, entrepreneurship, public service, positive relationships and community involvement. It will epitomize our journey for success.

We believe that we should celebrate our people, our culture and our achievements through recognition and awards; and, honor the valuable/significant contributions of Filipino Canadians in our community and in the Canadian society. Click here to learn more about the Golden Balangay Awards
