CEO, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. PREVIOUSLY # 42, 2016 Being a strong advocate for others is a thread that has continued throughout Queenie Choo’s career. She is the CEO of S.U.C.C.E.S.S., now the largest non-profit social service organization in the province, which provides settlement services to new immigrants through 25 locations in B.C., with three oices overseas. Choo has become one of the leading voices on seniors’ issues, which have been more important than ever as immigrant seniors have been hit hard by the housing aordability crisis rocking Vancouver. In August she became the first Chinese- Canadian woman to receive the title of honorary captain of HMCS Vancouver, a Halifaxclass frigate the Canadian navy has sailed since 1993. Her career in advocacy has seen her appointed to many advisory committees, including the premier’s Chinese- Canadian Community Advisory Committee and the provincial Minister’s Advisory Forum on Poverty Reduction.
