Dear Kababayan,


The Paetenians Canada Association is a non-profit organization of people residing in Canada with ties and origin to our beloved town of Paete, Laguna, Philippines (internationally known as the Paetenians International Canada Chapter).


Last July 2000, we hosted our Camping 2000 get-together at the Bingemans campground in Kitchener, Ontario. In July 2003 we treated our Balik-Tanaw 20th anniversary guests on a week-long festival and in July 2008 we were your host for our Balik-Saya party as part of our silver anniversary celebration. This year, we will open our doors once again for our Balik-Sigla 30th Anniversary celebration with a highlight Dinner Dance party on Saturday, August 17, 2013 at the Peter and Paul Banquet Hall in Scarborough (Toronto), Ontario.


Please join us also in a pot-luck lunch at the Niagara Glen Pavillion in Niagara Falls, Ontario on Sunday, August 18, 2013 starting at 10:30 am. For GPS coordinates please use Niagara Glen Nature Reserve Niagara Falls, Ontario. For an interactive map use the link below:


We are cordially inviting you to join us and be part of our 30th anniversary celebration which marked another significant milestone in our International Organization- the Paetenians International.
