Notice to PCCNO Members

Prostate Cancer Canada Network Ottawa (PCCNO) has been informed of the amalgamation of Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC) and the Canadian Cancer Society. This amalgamation will place all activities of PCC under the umbrella of the Canadian Cancer Society. PCCNO has no legal relationship with PCC. PCCNO is an independent Ottawa-based organization with its own By-law and CRA charity number. All PCCNO 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 PCCNO and its focus on work in the city of Ottawa and immediate area.

Additional Information for notice of next PCCNO meeting, March 19

The upcoming March 19 meeting is our Annual General Meeting. The Meeting includes an election of directors, treasurer report and Chair’s report. Special speaker is Jenny Mitchell who works in Ottawa as a leadership and fundraising coach. Jenny works with organizations in the not-for-profit sector and has assisted PCCNO with the creation of a Strategic Plan. We look forward to having Jenny address the meeting and give a status report on happenings in the not-for-profit sector.
