Who We Are

Where new friends meet old friends

At Pat Porter Active Living Centre (PPALC), you're not just a stranger; you have become part of our growing family.

Our aim is to focus on the needs of others. We do this a variety of ways including daily programs, events, meal delivery services, transportation, community involvement, physical exercise opportunities and much more.

You are never too young to start thinking about how you want to age. At PPALC, we embrace the fact that every day we are getting older and we do it with giant smiles on our faces.

We are constantly looking for more programs and opportunities and love to hear the stories of the people who walk through our doors.

You're also never too young to come join us for a cup of coffee.
