Association Philippine-Canadienne Artists du Québec
The Filipino-Canadian Artists Association of Québec (FCAAQ) is a nonprofit organization representing talented Filipino-Canadian actors, singers, dancers, musicians, and artists alike. In the past, we have helped aspiring artists participate in singing & dance competitions, gain first onstage appearances, and benefit experience from our coaching & mentorship programs. FCAAQ has helped raise funds for various organizations and initiatives in our community. Today, we are currently in the initial stages of preparing for the 3rd year of “The Search for Filipino Canadian Talent,” the first-and-only talent competition dedicated to introducing aspiring Filipino-Canadian artists. The competition is open to talented Filipino-Canadians aged 7 to 77, showcasing their talents in singing, dancing, acrobatics, and more (solo, duo, trio, quartet, maximum of five members in a group).
Montreal Band-Aid is our way to give back to the community. Since 2008, we have helped various community organizations during their fundraising initiatives. We raised funds and donated a large portion of our proceeds to various community initiatives or charities in Canada and the Philippines.
Our trained staff (volunteers/artists) gather to prepare a musical event wherein family, friends, and members of the community are invited to a day or night of brotherhood, fun & entertainment. A portion of the proceeds is donated to chosen initiatives & charities.
It’s amazing what we can do when we come together. I am proud and honored to have been given the opportunity to lead such talented and passionate individuals. I will do my very best to discover genuine artists, mold them into great gems, and later turn them into treasures where they will shine and glow for the entire world to see. Thanks for the support that’s made it all possible! – Michelle Vargas Lao, Founding President / Chairman, FCAAQ.ORG
