The formation of the Filipino-Canadian Seventh-Day Adventists of Alberta started way back when Edmonton Central SDA Church started celebrating Independence Day under the encouragement of Pastor John Wesley. In early 2002, this became a reality when Pastor Romulo Daquila accepted a call to become the Executive Secretary of the Alberta Conference. At that time there was no organized Filipino SDA congregation. He called a meeting in August 2002. The meeting was held in the conference office at Red Deer. Dr. Nimrod Montano was elected as the first president, George Vashisda as the first secretary, and Ben Barboza as the first treasurer. The very first FILCAN Camp Meeting was on August 22, 2003 led by the Edmonton group.
The Filipino-Canada Adventist Association of Alberta is a nonprofit organization that brings together various churches within the Filipino Seventh-day Adventist community. The Association was founded in 2002 and is part of the Alberta Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
