About Us

There has been a Filipino presence in Greater Peterborough (made up of the city of Peterborough and surrounding towns and villages) for at least three decades.

The recent decade saw a rapid increase in the number of Filipinos who came to the city of Peterborough. Many of them are professional health workers who settled in the city together with their families.

In response to the clamour of bringing together the growing community of kababayans, the Filipino Community of Peterborough (FILCOP) was created in 17 January 2010.
