Philippines Heritage Week celebrations
occurs annually in Winnipeg in the first weeks of June. The Knights of Rizal participate in a week long celebration with the Filipino-Canadian community of Winnipeg. KoR is proud to work with the organizations that help make the Philippines Heritage Week a success. To fulfill the mandate to propagate and share Rizal's values and ideal, a major event organized by the KoR Winnipeg Chapter last year was the viewing of the movie "Rizal".
This year, the contribution to Philippines Heritage Week by the KoR Winnipeg Chapter is the Unveiling of the Rizal Memorial Boulder and the Opening of the Dr. Jose Rizal Park on June 21, 2014. This is a significant event for the ever growing Filipino-Canadian community of Winnipeg as once again, the completion of the project signifies the recognition of the Filipino community as a vital part of the city of Winnipeg and the province of Manitoba.
