  • Toronto’s immigrant enclaves spread to suburbs

    By: Nicholas Keung Immigration reporter, Toronto Star, Published on Tue May 07 2013

    Mel Galeon started his bakery business with a gas stove and wok in a relative’s garage in Mississauga, selling homemade Filipino delicacies out of his car at community events.

    From a storefront in Toronto’s Little Manila to retail branches in ethnically mixed neighbourhoods in the suburbs, the evolution of Galeon’s business empire, FV Foods, over the last decade tells the story of how government policy plays a role in the way immigrants settle in Greater Toronto.

    Ethnic enclaves — a term sociologists use to describe areas with a concentration of a particular ethnic group and a cluster of commercial and institution activities — have been part of Toronto’s history ever since the presence of immigrants in Canada, though they were known by the less flattering term “ghettoes.”

  • FV Foods Bathurst Branch Grand Opening

    When it rains, it pours. Truly it was a great rainy morning of September 08, 2012 as FV Foods opened its sixth branch. The celebration was started at exactly 9:00 a.m. It was a new day for our business as it took a higher ground. Truly it was a great blessing from the Lord that must be took care of.
    The celebration was started by thanks giving prayer and store blessing of Rev. Fr. Albert Macalipay. It was followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony led by the President of Filipino Centre Toronto Mrs. Linda Cerredo Javier and my beloved mother from the Philippines Mrs. Violeta Albudin Vda. de Galeon.
