Positive Living Magazine
We’re happy to announce Positive Living magazine has a new online format – it’s interactive, shareable, and works well on mobile devices. Have a read and check it out!

Thank you for your kindhearted and caring past support of the Positive Living Society of British Columbia. You have helped us deliver programs, services and supports that sustain health and improve quality of life for our members. 2016 has been rife with financial challenges in the HIV sector—so much so that we have had to forgo our annual Members’ Christmas Dinner. But not all is lost! With your generosity, Positive Living BC can make 2017 a year of hope and health for people living with HIV in our community.

• A donation of $100 will do wonders to sustain our highly successful Healing Retreats (actual cost for one member is $570 over 3 nights with meals provided).
• A donation of $50.00 will help cover costs associated with our valuable support groups such as Ou+doorsmen, SUITS, AJ’s Café, Member’s Lounge, WISE Women’s Support and ViVA (women’s support group).
Of course, the season wouldn’t be complete at Positive Living BC without our Members’ Lounge Tribute Tree.
• For a donation of $25.00, we’ll write your loved one’s name on a red ribbon ornament that will decorate the brightly-lit tree in our Member’s Lounge.
