Allison Laing, Secretary

Allison Laing has worked in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside community for almost 15 years with a focus on social justice, harm reduction, low barrier employment, and most recently, mental health and addictions research. After years of working with marginalised people, she appreciates that community needs to be built and nurtured, and is looking forward to contributing in whichever way she can to this programme that builds capacity in young people’s lives.  Allison has lived in East Vancouver for longer than she’d care to admit, and can often be spotted cutting through the Britannia campus on the way to the Drive.
