Canadian writers take so much for granted. Canada Council programs. Festivals and readings. Cheques arriving from the Public Lending Right Commission and Access Copyright. The Writers’ Trust of Canada Awards. Apparently, some of us believe that these things sprang unbidden from a naturally generous culture, and will always be with us. But they exist thanks mainly to the sustained creative efforts and constant vigilance of Rhe Writers’ Union of Canada. We owe. We owe those who have gone before us, and we owe those who will come after.
We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) and the Department of Canadian Heritage. We also acknowledge, with immense thanks, the generous donation of legal services by Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP.
