Join us at 8:15 am at Jane’s Restaurant to explore the CreativeMornings global theme of SPICY, featuring speaker Jackie Wild.

As a young boy growing up in the rural farmlands of Southern Leyte, Jackie’s father spent countless hours in the kitchen alongside his mother, cooking up tasty traditional Philippine dishes. Since immigrating to Canada in the 1980s, he dreamed of opening a restaurant where he could serve the same nostalgic meals from his homeland and childhood.

Over four decades later, Jackie turned this pipe dream into a reality by penning a business plan while on maternity leave from her career in the corporate sector. Taking a collective leap of faith, this father-daughter duo opened Tito Boy Restaurant’s doors to their kababayan (fellow country people) and the broader community in October 2022.

As the first Philippine eatery in the south end of Winnipeg, Tito Boy’s offers a safe, welcoming space for building intergenerational and intercultural connections. The purpose of this communal gathering place is not only about serving delicious food—it’s about sharing and celebrating the lived experiences of our Philippine-Canadian diaspora.

Join us for engaging conversation and delightful bites with Jackie at the upcoming CreativeMornings session. During this talk, she will unpack the unconventional path that enabled her to unlock her creative potential and launch her own business.
