TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA - The Little Miss Philippines Canada 2017 candidates of the Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation (PCCF) showcased their talents and beauty during the Pre-Pageant show held May 6th at the Korean Cultural Centre in Toronto.

This undertaking of the Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation's goal is to inspire excellence in the children and promote in them a better understanding of the Filipino culture. It is also PCCF's hope that they will be able to help develop the girls to be role models and inspiration to their peers, and at the same time develop their self-confidence and showcase their beauty and talents. More importantly, PCCF aims to instill in the young girls’  impressionable minds that by taking part in activities aimed at benefiting not only themselves, but also those less fortunate than them, will make their ‘inner beauty’ shine brighter and help develop their character and substance. 

The Little Miss Philippines Canada pageant is run by volunteers from the Filipino-Canadian community, headed by PCCF President Romeo Rafael, Pageant Director and PCCF Executive Vice-President Rosemer Enverga, Co-Chairs Fe Taduran, Velona Daliva & Nitz Calvez, and choreographer Chollo Lagdameo, is now on its 7th year.

The mothers of the candidates were called on-stage to be honoured as PCCF celebrated Mother's Day. They parents were happy to show their pride and support, and to congratulate their daughters for the very entertaining show.
