“Always a Beacon of Light and Hope”
FILIPINO-CANADIAN SENATOR TOBIAS C. ENVERGA, JR.
The Commission on Filipinos Overseas extends its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family of the first Filipino-Canadian appointed to the Senate of Canada, Senator Tobias C. Enverga, Jr.
An exemplar of Filipino excellence, Senator Enverga’s appointment to a high-level position in the Canadian government in 2012 was hailed by the Philippine government and the Filipino communities across Canada.
Known affectionately as “Jun”, Senator Enverga’s sudden death on November 16, 2017 during a parliamentary visit to Colombia shocked his family, friends, Filipino communities across Canada, and his colleagues from the Senate of Canada.
|Beyond his Presidential Citation in 2008, Senator Enverga was a demonstration of a true patriot through his continued charitable assistance for his fellow Filipinos.|
