Annual Business Meeting

Notice to PCNO Members

Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC) and the Canadian Cancer Society were amalgamated in 2020. However, PCNO has no legal relationship with PCC. PCNO is an independent Ottawa-based organization with its own By-law and CRA charity number. All PCNO activities and funds raised are dedicated to local causes and organizations whose purpose is to conduct public awareness, research and supporting men and their families cope with prostate cancer. The amalgamation of these two organizations in no way affects the mandate of PCNO and its focus on work in the city of Ottawa and immediate area.
