About Our Organization & Funders

  • We believe in fundamental human rights for all individuals (immigrants, refugees, and Canadians of African backgrounds) impacted by HIV/AIDS.
  • We envision a society that treats all individuals with respect, dignity and social justice.
  • Our central values include support, empowerment, education and advocacy.

We are a dedicated and supportive team of survivors, who are struggling to overcome barriers of language and stigmatization, to unite and uplift each other.   We establish networks for peer education and collaborative knowledge-sharing, in our particular culturally appropriate context (and languages, as Swahili, Amharic and English.)

The AFRO-CANADIAN POSITIVE NETWORK OF BC SOCIETY is an incorporated non-profit organization (since 2012. Updated Sept. 2018. Our society incorporation number is S0057042.)
