The Circulo Cagayano Association of British Columbia is a non-profit, non-political and non-sectarian association founded by the late Engineer Tomas Pagalilauan and wife Tomasa in 1991. Based in Vancouver, B.C., it was registered in Victoria B.C. since 1994.
Now on its 24th year, it has grown into one of the biggest Filipino Association in B.C. Their main mission is to execute activities that will enhance the image of the Filipinos, particularly the Cagayanos in B.C. as well help fellow kababayan in integrating them into the mainstream Canadian culture. They also have projects that benefit fellow Cagayanos in the Philippines.
Noted accomplishments of the association include teaching Filipino language and culture to 19 kids of Filipino ancestry but born and raised in Canada; fundraising to help out in typhoon relief operations; and awarding scholarship to a select number of graduating high-school students from the town of Solana, Enrile and Tuguegarao in the province of Cagayan.
