About Us

We are a community-based organization made up of dedicated, caring, committed individuals. Staff and volunteers alike provide support, education, and advocacy in a safe and confidential environment for HIV-positive individuals, their families, and their friends.

In 1987, we started the AIDS Committee of Niagara. We were an advisory committee to the Niagara Regional Public Health Service’s AIDS Program. We evolved from a committee to a not-for-profit, community-based AIDS service organization (ASO).

Glen Walker says that he will be stepping down as the full-time Executive Director of Positive Living Niagara, as he has decided to start to move into retirement at this time.  Glen would like everyone to know that is has been an honour for him to guide this amazing organization for the last ten years and he is very proud of the agency and its staff.

His last day in the office will be June 25th, 2021 as Executive Director. The Board of Directors has endorsed a unique leadership plan in response to his decision to step down as Executive Director. The three Program Managers Jackie Barrett-Green, Vanessa Fyfe and Talia Storm have all moved into Program Director Roles within their program roles. They will retain their current responsibilities as managers and collectively take on the additional duties of the Executive Director. Glen will not be leaving the agency entirely but stepping back into a consulting role to the Program Directors Triumvirate.


Glen would like to thank all the people we support, community partners, his wonderful staff and a fantastic Board of Directors for making Positive Living the strong and vibrant agency it is today. He says “I step back knowing that the agency is in great hands!”
