Robson-Kanu was one of three players sent home by Dragons boss Page in March for breaking Covid-19 rules.
Baggies boss Sam Allardyce then revealed his forward had met 'somebody you shouldn't' days before the 1-0 World Cup win over the Czech Republic.
The other two ill-disciplined players – Tyler Roberts of Leeds and Schalke's Rabbi Matondo – have been included for the five-day pre-Euro training camp in the Algarve.
Page insisted the issue would not harm the trio's Euro 2020 chances but Robson-Kanu is the big name to have been overlooked.
Robson-Kanu, 32, has scored two Premier League goals in his last three games, against Liverpool and then Leeds on Sunday's final day.
The 32-year-old, capped 44 times, has been a cult hero for Wales fans after he scored a 'Cruyff turn' goal against Belgium in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals.
Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey are in the travelling party while Page, who has replaced Ryan Giggs for the finals, has six players unavailable due to Europa League final and play-off action.
They include Manchester United's Dan James as well as players from Swansea, Lincoln and Newport.

Tottenham's Ben Davies, Ethan Ampadu of Chelsea and Stoke's Joe Allen all travel despite recent injuries.
Wales' medical staff will assess Juventus star Ramsey after he missed the Serie A win at Bologna with a muscular problem.
Ramsey, who has been plagued by fitness issues in his two seasons in Italy, is understood to be suffering from muscle fatigue and will need to be managed.
Wales kick off their Euros campaign against Switzerland in Baku on June 12 before taking on Turkey and Italy.
Prior to that, Page’s Dragons have friendlies with France on June 2 before hosting Albania in Cardiff three days later.
