Pinoys on Parliament: National Youth Leadership Conference, also known as POP, is a yearly national youth leadership conference for young Filipino-Canadians held at Ottawa, Ontario.

In its inaugural year, POP brought together over 100 young Filipino-Canadians across Canada. Through panels of Filipino leaders in various fields and workshops, POP provides young Filipino-Canadians with an environment where they can exchange perspectives on what it is like to grow up as a Filipino-Canadian and the obstacles that come with pursuing their individualistic careers.

Thanks to the Government of Canada and TakingITGlobal, POP is free of cost to all who want to attend!
