PAL Vancouver provides a safe, affordable home for a vibrant community of creative professionals who work, or have worked, in the performing arts. Our doors are open to all disciplines—film, television, radio, theatre, dance, music—and just about any occupation within them that you can think of. Priority is given to seniors (55+), persons with disabilities, and those with the greatest housing need.
In addition to the 111 units in the PAL Vancouver building, there is a reading room, a rooftop garden and a fully equipped, 150-seat theatre. The theatre is available for use by both residents and other professional performing artists and groups.

We welcome UBCP’s Eric Pollins, Mark Acheson, Hagan Beggs, Jo Bates, Anne Marie DeLuise, Keith Humphries, Jennifer Forlin, Ben Ratner, Meldrum Tuck, and Kathryn Daniels as supportive PAL Vancouver donors and hopefully long-time friends.

A BIG thank you to Howard Jang, Executive Director, Arts Club Theatre Company. As part of Howard’s legacy as Chair of Tourism Vancouver he had the honour of making a donation to a charity of his choice. Howard chose PAL Vancouver and announced a contribution of $1,000 to PAL at Tourism Vancouver’s AGM on June 7th at Christ Church Cathedral. Howard has been active with PAL since its inception and has provided invaluable leadership and support to us through his involvement on the Board of Trustees and Governance Committee. His contribution of $1,000 is truly inspiring and we thank him for his ongoing support.
