She was born in Swanage, Dorset, England and moved with her family to Canada in 1919. She spent the last years of her life in Victoria, British Columbia. P.K. Page was an author of many published books of poetry. Her poems were translated into other languages. By a special resolution of United Nations, in 2001 her poem Planet Earth was read simultaneously in New York, Antarctic and South Pacific to celebrate the International Year of Dialogue Between Civilizations.

In 1977 she was made an Officer of the Order of Canada and was promoted to Companion in 1998.
