Pam Copley


Pam is a graduate of University of Victoria’s Cultural Resource Management Program. She enjoyed her career in heritage preservation policy and planning with the B.C. Heritage Branch until 2016.

She has contributed to her community in several volunteer capacities since the early ‘90s, ultimately serving as a three term Oak Bay Municipal Councillor between 2005 and 2014, with related committee responsibility on CDR Arts, Royal & McPherson Theatres Society, Oak Bay land use and Official Community Plan renewal.

Pam is delighted to have an opportunity as a CCPA Board member to return to her early passion for theatre arts! While her family was growing, she worked as assistant scenic painter for the VOS, POV, (and even a movie!) as well as volunteer painting coordinator for the Oak Bay High Drama Program. In 1998 while working as an administrator of a youth mentoring program in heritage and culture, CCPA was among her first sponsoring  organizations; another reason she is excited to take on this role.

With her husband Brian, Pam lived in Oak Bay for over 40 years raising three children, and now lives close by in Fairfield Gonzales. She still serves on committees and also enjoys dabbling in visual art, singing in two choirs and spending time with her five grandchildren.
