    World AIDS Day will be recognized across the globe on December 1. The day will raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, encourage progress in HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care, and acknowledge the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS all over the world.

    As part of the celebrations on Monday, December 1, we invite you to join us at our Open House to visit our new home in Richmond Hill. And we hope you can stay to commemorate this special day with us at a candlelight vigil.

    For more details about our World AIDS Day related activities and RSVP information for the Open House, please go to Day.

    Our activities leading up to World AIDS Day include a free and anonymous HIV testing drive event at our Richmond Hill office on Monday, November 24, which marks the beginning of World AIDS Awareness Week.

    Join us in our online social media campaign #RedforChange campaign by wearing something Red between November 24 and November 28. Red for Change encourages everyone to ‘Wear it, Hold it, Show it!’ for World AIDS Day. Share a photo of yourself wearing, holding or showing us something red – and telling us why World AIDS Day is important to you. With the help of social media, we aim to get the word out about HIV/AIDS in York Region.

    Do you know that December 2 is @GivingTuesdayCa ? Giving Tuesday is a Canadian movement for giving and volunteering that takes place each year after Cyber Monday. The opening day of the giving season, it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.
