On January 25, 2022, the Philippine Consulate General - Toronto announced that Alex Chiu (†)1 was chosen as a recipient of the 2021 Presidential Awards for Filipino Individuals and Organizations Overseas (PAFIOO) and awarded the Banaag Award 2021 posthumously.
Stemming from humble beginnings, Alex served his Markham community for 33 years as councilor for ward 8. During this time, the Markham Federation of Filipino Canadians (MFFC) was also established together with his wife Alicia Chiu and a small but very dedicated group of individuals who all shared the responsibilities of running the much respected and beloved organization. The work he has accomplished for more than 3 decades was unprecedented and has spanned not just Ontario but also to the Philippines. He is known to his peers as a man with few words but motivated to action. His wife, Alicia daughter, Cherrie Marie and son, Christopher (†)2, were steadfast supporters of all his projects.
