（一）過去您曾經是渥太華中文學校（Ottawa Chinese Language School）校董會成員之一 （現稱董事）；或
中文學校董事會很遺憾地要告訴您，渥太華中文學校（OCLS） ～ 一個在過去五十多年參與中文教育的非營利機構，正處於解散過程中。
You are receiving this email because you may have been a past board member, volunteer, or were involved with the Ottawa Chinese Language School (OCLS). As a courtesy, we are letting you know that after more than 50 years of operation, OCLS is sadly in the process of shutting down.
A lot of effort was spent over the last few years to re-establish the organization’s governance structure and assess whether OCLS could continue operating. Although there is approximately $214,000 in the Education Reserve Fund, legal counsel has advised that the fund may only be used for educational activities related to Chinese language and culture, and not for any operational or infrastructure costs. In addition, the Board, currently consisting of three members, was unsuccessful in getting sufficient community involvement to run OCLS‘s operations and/or cultural activities. As such, it was decided that the charity is no longer sustainable.
For more information, here are some links to previous discussions and outcomes with community members:
The remaining funds will be donated to one or more charities, registered with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), that have a similar vision and mission of promoting the Chinese language and culture to children. We are currently reviewing the CRA’s Charity Listing and we will keep you posted on our decision.
Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who may be interested in this information.
