PAL Ottawa was incorporated in 2012 and currently has a modest operating budget around $50,000 per year. It is volunteer led with part-time contractors for communications, projects, fundraising, record-keeping and bookkeeping. A preliminary feasibility study was done in 2015 to create a business plan for a non-profit affordable live-work residence designed for senior arts workers which relied upon a partnership model.
