The PCG, in partnership with the Philippine Department of Migrant Workers and the Migrant Workers Office in Vancouver, successfully negotiated the MOU with the Alberta Government.
Philippine Consul General Zaldy B. Patron and Minister of Advanced Education Demetrios Nicolaides will deliver remarks.
A resource person from the third party which will administer the bursary program will explain the details of the program.
