    The Filipino Canadian Construction Society (FCCS) is composed of Fil – Can contractors, small business owners and professionals with a self-mandate of providing value to the construction community through education and training, networking, and political advocacy. One of their famous program is mentoring newly-landed immigrants and assisting them to locate engineering-related jobs. In the year 2009, under the leadership of one of its founding member – Amado Mercado Jr., FCCS successfully contributed $6,000 cash to the construction of the new Multicultural Helping House Society’s headquarter in Vancouver. Mr. Mercado also added that in its 10 years of existence, the society was able to assist in various ways approximately 60 immigrants to settle here in lower mainland. The group in various occasions also represented the Filipino community in various federal and provincial consultation sessions to help improve the welfare of Filipinos in Canadian society.

    In 2015, FCCS received the prestigious Professional Immigrant Network Leadership Award from the Immigrant Employment Council of British Columbia (IECBC). Its current President–Ed Nicolas, himself a registered professional engineer (P.Eng) and a certified Home Inspector, labeled the award as a testament of the group’s dedication to help newly landed immigrants integrate themselves into Canadian society through its various programs and activities.

    Everyone is invited to join FCCS 10th year celebration. If interested to attend or be a sponsor of the event, please contact Ed Nicolas at 778-378-7637 or Amado Mercado at 604-786-6801. Our website is also available 24/7 at www.fccsbc.wix.com/org and we are also active in Facebook.
