In a solemn ceremony led by Consul Edna May Grecia Lazaro for dual citizenship held recently at the Holiday Inn Hotel, more than 30 Filipino-Canadians took an oath of allegiance to the Philippine flag, making them both Canadian and Filipino Citizens.
“Having dual citizenship is the best to happen to me here in Canada, especially if you are thinking of a business or owning more lands. And being a Filipino citizen at the same time, staying in Manila will not be a problem,” said Jason del Mundo who had been living in Canada for four years.
Led by Consul Lazaro, the consular services served the Filipinos living in Manitoba at the Holiday Inn. Applicants for passport renewal, power of attorney affidavit and dual citizenship oath-taking were some of the services being offered to the Filipinos living in Winnipeg and other towns and cities in the province of Manitoba.
“We do announce our outreach consular program on the internet and they can make appointments for the renewal of passports,” Consul Lazaro said.
The recent oath-taking of the Filipino-Canadians included the promotion of the 2020 Winter Escapade 7 which will happen on January 15 to 22, 2020.
“This Winter Escape 7 has been attracting many kababayans and I do hope that you will consider to join us this coming January. And the best way to see our beautiful country with a minimal fee, just $1,850 per person,” Consul Lazaro explained as the dual citizenship recipients watched the video. She also endorsed the help of Honorary Consul Roland Opina who will be coordinating those who will be joining from Manitoba.
Yes, “It’s more fun in the Philippines” is the front and centre of the tourism program.
And the Winter Escape 7 offers many exciting trips to Boracay, Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, Clark City and accommodation to some 5-star hotel.
And a possible audience to meet the most popular City of Manila, Mayor Isko Moreno
