“In a business where insecurity follows like a shadow throughout your career, old age promises nothing more than poverty-line living at best. PAL … was an idea whose time had come”  -  Roy Wordsworth, PAL Canada Founding President

 

By joining PAL CANADA you are:

  • helping to ensure that current, and future disadvantaged professional artists are adequately supported in the area of affordable housing.
  • making a difference by helping this national organization continue to provide its "Supporting Cast" program, the root and heart of the organization, which is a group of volunteers who offer personal assistance to PAL members so that they can continue to lead meaningful, independent lives in their own homes. These services may include: assistance in dealing with community agencies and health care providers, rides to medical appointments, running errands and light housekeeping. Supporting Cast volunteers offer companionship and a friendly sympathetic ear, but also serve to check in with members who are on their own. Depending on the chapter, they may also organize weekly or monthly group activities that allow solitary members to get together with their peers.

For members of ACTRA, CAEA, CMA/AFM, IATSE, Directors Guild of Canada, the Writers Guild of Canada and artists as a whole,  joining PAL Canada provides an opportunity to enjoy a great sense of personal satisfaction, as their membership in PAL Canada helps to demonstrate a formidable strength as a community of artists, supporting other artists.
