Statement by ParlAmericas

ParlAmericas wishes to express its sincere condolences for the loss of Canadian Senator, The Honourable Tobias C. Enverga, Jr., who passed away suddenly this morning in Medellin, Colombia, while on parliamentary business as a member of the Canadian delegation to ParlAmericas’ Annual Plenary Assembly. Senator Enverga was a valued contributor to our inter-parliamentary community in Latin America and the Caribbean, and a devoted voice for his constituents and for Canada. As an advocate for multiculturalism, he recently sponsored the Latin America Heritage Month Act in the Senate of Canada. He was a dedicated public servant and deeply respected parliamentary colleague. Known for his community service, Senator Enverga was a champion for people living with disabilities and founder of the Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation. Senator Enverga was appointed to represent the province of Ontario in the Senate of Canada in September 2012. He is survived by his loving wife Rosemer Enverga and three daughters.
