Patti Gail Peaker

(April 7, 1936 - November 26, 2022)

PAL Canada Foundation is saddened by the loss of one our lifetime board members and original founders and pioneers of our organization.

Patty Gail Peaker passed away on the morning of Saturday, November 26th.

She was also the founder of our Supporting Cast program, the "the root and heart of the philosophy of PAL Canada nationwide, a group of volunteers dedicated to offering personal assistance to elder PAL members so that they can continue to lead meaningful, independent lives."

Patty Gail, the pioneer, tirelessly dedicated much of her life to the mission of PAL Canada. Her joy, wit, love and passion for the arts and seniors artists, shone through in every board meeting and executive committee meeting. Her presence and her positive energy will be missed by all. 

We will update our supporters in the coming days of how we will honour and remember this icon of the PAL community from coast to coast coast. 


We create caring communities and support programs, which allow senior members of Canada’s arts and entertainment industry to thrive.

Founded in 1986, PAL Canada Foundation is the national “umbrella” organization that represents and supports seven individual PAL chapters across the country, including Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto, Stratford, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver.

Masterclass Series.

Through this inter-generational Masterclass experience for youth (14-30), especially Indigenous youth, PAL Canada is striving to promote volunteerism and mentorship opportunities among seniors. Throughout Behind the Scenes of 2022-23, we will work to increase engagement of seniors in our community through the mentoring of youth from coast-to-coast-to-coast in Canada, connecting talent nationwide in the process. This experience benefits the youth by providing an opportunity in a virtual classroom to learn from seasoned professionals within the arts and entertainment industry about great jobs and careers many have never heard of … yet!

Funding for this Masterclass Series is supported by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Project
