Notice to PCCNO Members

Prostate Cancer Network Ottawa (PCNO) 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. PCNO 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 PCNO and its focus on work in the city of Ottawa and immediate area.
