Interim Executive Director
Tim was the Executive Director at PLEA Community Services Society for over 30 years, retiring in 2016. Two years later, he was appointed by the Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction to facilitate the Re-Imagining Community Inclusion initiative, a stakeholder engagement process which created a ten-year road map for the development of supports and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in BC. He was a board member of the former BC Human Rights Coalition, among other voluntary roles.
Q members and supporters with long memories may recall the days when we were known as the Vancouver Gay & Lesbian Community Centre. Tim co-chaired the board for three years. He signed the first lease for our Bute Street space in 1985, never imagining we would be here 35 years later!
