PMSC is a cause-oriented organisation that promotes the rights and welfare of Filipino migrants in Canada. The goals of PMSC are to organise, mobilise and educate overseas Filipinos on the issues of migrants and the Filipino people in order that they are better able to defend their rights.

PMSC was initially known as the Philippine Multicultural Society of Canada. It was set up in 1996 as a support group for Filipino domestic workers and live-in caregivers. The initial objective of the organisation was to work toward the integration of all Filipino Canadians and other ethno-cultural groups in the economic, social cultural and political life in Canada.

In the year 2000, PMSC changed its name to Pilipinong Migrante sa Canada, and renewed its mandate and broadened its focus. Its membership base now includes all migrant Filipinos.

Juana Tejada Law and other changes to LCP: Victory to all caregivers

The proposed changes include the Juana Tejada Law which eliminates the required second medical examination for caregivers when applying to become permanent residents in Canada. 

This is indeed a great honour for the late Juana Tejada who, together with Migrante-Ontario and its allied organizations, and the Independent Workers’ Association, advocated for the elimination of the second medical requirement so that other caregivers would not suffer the same sad experience she had went through.
