It’s that time of the year again – the AVI Annual General Meeting! Join us as we continue the transition from AIDS Vancouver Island to AVI Health & Community Services.


The AGM is Wednesday November 2018 from 5:00-7:30pm at the Ambrosia Centre (638 Fisgard St)


This year’s guest speaker is Dr Marilou Gagnon, RN, PhD, Associate Professor UVic School of Nursing.


Dr Gagnon’s “work is underpinned by critical and sociopolitical approaches. Her program of research seeks to address gaps in knowledge that have the potential to inform public debate and policies, while also advancing the rights and the health of marginalized communities.


She served on the board of directors of the Canadian Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (CANAC) (09–13) and was Expert Advisor Research, Policy and Advocacy for CANAC from 2013-16. She also served on the board of the Bureau Régional d’Action Sida (BRAS) in Gatineau (12-14) and joined the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network’s board of directors in 2013 for a first mandate and a second mandate in 2015.


She was the founder of the Coalition of Nurses for Supervised Injection Services. The Coalition played a key role in advocating for supervised injection services between 2015-2017. Please see https://marilougagnon.com/ for more information on her contributions to HIV, safe consumption sites, and nursing care.

The evening’s program will include HIV and HCV Peers sharing their personal stories and hopes for tomorrow, an update on our Westshore Opioid Agonist Therapy Clinic, and strategies to embed the history and honour of AIDS Vancouver Island in all we do.


An appetizer buffet will be provided.
