Funeral Co-operative of Ottawa Board Member receives Order of Ottawa (Ottawa, Nov. 25, 2016)
November 30, 2016
The Funeral Co-operative of Ottawa Inc. (FCO) is proud to announce that one of its Board Members, Jacqueline Pelletier, has received the Order of Ottawa. Ms. Pelletier has over 30 years of experience as a consultant and facilitator in government, as well as the voluntary and private sectors. She has been a member of the Board of FCO since 2014. "For over three years, we have offered professional, non-profit services adapted to the evolving trends and wishes of bereaved families in Eastern Ontario. "I am immensely proud to be part of this innovative cooperative that serves people of all cultures and religions, in both official languages" said Pelletier. “The Order of Ottawa honours remarkable residents for their service in both professional and civic-oriented endeavours,” said Mayor Watson at the ceremony last week. “It is a privilege to recognize the accomplishments and contributions of these influential people who enrich our city and have made a difference in the lives of others in our community.” Ms. Pelletier has a long involvement in communications and with the arts scene in the region. She regularly served as host and facilitator of prestigious national and international conferences. During the 1980s and 90s, she hosted several prime-time programs on TFO, (French TV Ontario), covering broadcasts of government projects, business, arts, social and community initiatives. Ms. Pelletier chaired the board of directors and fundraising for La Nouvelle Scène (LNS) from 1998 to 2001, during its initial creation. In 2012, she co-chaired the steering committee for the 2013-2016 Renewed Action Plan for Arts, Heritage and Culture in Ottawa. An active Franco-Ontarian, she was involved with the creation of Le College La Cité. She has most recently assisted with the integration of numerous Syrian refugee families in Ottawa. She is the Past President of the Ontario Advisory Council on Women’s Issues, and is a Knight of the Order of the Pleiades of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Francophonie since 2000.
