Virtual AGM August 6th at 19:30
Canadian Prostate Cancer Support Groups
Please note our Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday, August 6, 2020 at 7:30 pm. Due to COVID-19, in order to maintain everyone’s health and safety, the Steering Committee has decided to use Zoom to hold an online meeting. If you wish to join us via computer and have not received an email invitation please send us your coordinates to email@example.com and we will send you the Zoom information. You may also listen to the proceedings by phone. An email with the meeting information will be sent a few days prior to the meeting.
Telephone Help Line
Starting this month, the federal government sent out a one-time $300 tax-free payment to recipients of Old Age Security (OAS). However, the reality for most us is that the financial impact of the pandemic has resulted in many of us actually spending less money than we would otherwise. We are not traveling, we are not eating out, we are not shopping, (some of us can’t figure out how to shop online anyway), so we find we don’t need all the $300. However, like other charitable non-profits, we are feeling the pinch, especially a reduction in donations and our expenses have not gone away. And we still need to maintain our website, support phone line, and Zoom, etc. As well we are planning for when we can have live meetings again and the added costs they will entail with physical distancing and sanitizing requirements required at the Sarto Desnoyers Community Centre.
We’d like to ask that you consider donating all or at least a part or what you can afford of the $300 to our Prostate Cancer Support Group. Remember that with tax benefits your actual cost of the donation is 30-50% less than the amount we receive. You can use the Canada Helps link at the bottom of the page should want to respond.

We are a Montreal West Island support for those who need help dealing with a diagnosis of prostate cancer and coping the ensuing problems. Our membership meets monthly for talks and peer to peer conversations. We also disseminate information at a wide range of community functions and in our quarterly newsletter.
Meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of every month except July, August and December. Our meetings often involve an invited speaker, followed by refreshments and conversation. A wide variety of helpful literature is available to take home.
