UPAA Edmonton

UPAAE is a group of alumni from the University of the Philippines (UP) based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The work to incorporate the new association began in June 2013, and the inaugural meeting was held on July 18, 2013.

UPAAE aims to achieve the following objectives: foster fellowship and cooperation among the members of the association; promote education and skills training through scholarships, bursaries, and similar programs; implement projects and programs that will inform, support, and assist members and the community; support the promotion of Philippine culture and heritage; and, provide a channel of communication between the University of the Philippines (UP) and the members of the association.

Since 2013, UPAAE launched multiple projects and events to fulfill its objectives. Among them are the annual PLACE scholarships for UP students in the Philippines; participation in the Philippines Heritage Month and Fiesta Filipino; and, the Bahay Kubo Series, which is a 10-month crafts program where kids learn more about the indigenous life in the Philippines.

UPAAE was awarded the Distinguished Service Award for an Alumni Chapter in 2019 by the University of the Philippines.
