David ‘Patch’ Patchell-Evans will be one of four Canadian business leaders inducted into Junior Achievement Canada’s Canadian Business Hall of Fame this week, joining more than 200 well-known business leaders who have changed the lives of people living in Canada for the better.

David Patchell-Evans is the first fitness club owner in Canada to receive this honour. He was selected based on three criteria: 

  1. Business leadership – a career with a long track record of success
  2. Civic leadership – contributions to the social fabric of Canada
  3. Positive role model – an excellent example for the 270,000 youth who take part in the Junior Achievement program

We congratulate Patch on 42 years of business leadership that has helped countless people live healthy, active lives.

Patch’s virtual induction into The Canadian Business Hall of Fame takes place on Thursday, May 27, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:20 p.m. Patch’s induction is set to take place at 1:50 p.m. ET (in case you can only make it to part of the event).

He would love to have you join in on the celebration – this award is for ALL of us, and the good news is so welcome, especially during these challenging times.
