Personal Attendant for Leisure Card

A PAL Card application can be completed by the individual applying for a PAL Card, their legal parent/guardian or by a referring agency. The PAL Card is reference based and the two (2) references need to be professionals in the disability community. Some examples of appropriate references are, support workers, doctors, teachers, health professionals, Occupational Therapists, Recreation Therapists, etc.

The length of time it takes to process a PAL Card is dependant on the ability to contact a reference.

You can find a PAL Card Application here: PAL Card Application.  You can also pick one up  at the Canada Games Complex or Victoriaville Civic Centre, Community Services front desk.

If you are approved for a PAL Card, you will then be contacted for a picture. We can also take a picture at the Canada Games Complex or Victoriaville Civic Centre, Community Services front desk.

All Recreation & Culture run programs/facilities accept the PAL Card, as well as several non-City operated facilities and services in Thunder Bay. See the link below for the most up to date Acceptors List.
