In 2018, Zahid sponsored the motion to declare June as Filipino Heritage Month in Canada, making this the first year that it is nationally celebrated and recognized.

However, this isn’t the first time that the prime minister has taken part in celebrating Philippine heritage. Back in 2016, he was seen partying with Pinoys in Toronto, where he cooked up some Pinoy barbecue.
