The Facts.

  • Compared to all other immigrant populations in Canada, Filipino youth are less likely to be successful.

  • Many Filipino youth are not attending and finishing school.

  • Despite our parents and immigrants peers having post secondary education, many Filipino youth are not pursuing a degree. 

It's time to rise above these barriers.
