Dominique Michel, Québécoise comedian, actress and singer, has received a colon cancer diagnosis at the age of 77.

Born in Sorel-Tracy, the Gemini award-winning star is an Officer of the Order of Canada and was made a Knight in the Ordre national du Québec in 2002.  A household name in la belle province, Dominique has starred in numerous television shows and films, has co-hosted the world-famous Just For Laughs festival and is a recurring ingredient in the success of Bye Bye, the wildly popular New Years Eve sketch comedy show.  She will be undergoing surgical intervention today.

The CCAC wishes Domonique Michel a healthy treatment journey and continued laughter!
