  • The Negrenses Association of BC, Canada was founded more than 20 years ago by a group of Hacienderous from Negros Occidental. It is a registered association in Vancouver, BC. One of the main characteristic of this association is by giving value and recognizing where we came from. To honor our roots, we give back to the community through our many endeavours most especially our Medical Missions in Negros Occidental.

    In our medical missions, we provide some much needed medicines, vitamins and food supplements to our less fortunate brothers and sisters in Negros Occidental.

    What we have done in the past includes, hosting a Christmas Party to the Rugby addicted kids in Bacolod City, helping fire, flood & typhoon victims, by sending monetary contributions and sending relief goods and non perishable food item, as well as providing water pumps to  needy Barangays in Negros Occidental.

    In British Columbia, the association held beauty pageants to select our Negrenses Queens, talent shows to show case the talent of our members specialty the young ones, we also participate in the community parades to represent our province and perform dances to support people living with cancer.

    As a duly licensed organization, and as a recognition of the many outstanding contribution to the community, The Negrenses Association of BC was a recipient of The Maharlika Award for The Most Outstanding Filipino Association in British Columbia in 2013.

    In October of this year, we will be conducting another Medical Mission in the municipality of Pontevedra, Negros Occidental. To prepare for this endeavor we will have a concert in cooperation
    with Goldie of Retrospect and Wency Cornejo. As an Association, we hope to continue on with our mission of helping our less fortunate brothers and sisters in The Philippines, especially in Negros Occidental. We would like to thank to everyone for their support but most especially the children and parents who are recipients of our Medical Missions for letting us be a part of their lives for just a moment in time.
