Our umbrella organization PAL Canada is the proud recipient of the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television’s 2016 Humanitarian Award. PAL Canada accepted the award at a special ceremony in Toronto on March 9, 2016, as part of Canadian Screen Week 2016.
In a statement, PAL Canada congratulated all of their board members and volunteers for serving the many artists in need throughout the eight PAL Canada Foundation chapters located across the country and affirmed that the award belonged to all of them collectively. There was also special acknowledgement and mention made of the founding members for dreaming, and for having the strength, courage and tenacity to build, develop and make manifest, their dream of PAL Canada Foundation.
We at PAL Ottawa aspire to that level of strength and courage as we pursue our dream of creating an affordable housing unit for senior and disadvantaged members of the professional artists’ community in the national capital.
Bravo to our colleagues at PAL Canada!
