How to spell cancellation
What does canceling mean?
verb (used with object), can·celed, can·cel·ing or (especially British) can·celled, can·cel·ling. to make void, as a contract or other obligation; annul: to cancel a hotel reservation;to cancel a magazine subscription. to decide or announce that a planned event will not take place; call off: to cancel a meeting.
Has been or have been Cancelled?
If it’s a recent event (yesterday, for the sake of argument), and/or the context was that there was then an explanation of what they were going to do about it, then I’d use a perfect tense ” has been cancelled “. If on the other hand, it happened a while ago and thus was now all in the past, I’d say “was cancelled “.
