He serves as the 2SLGBTQIA+ sector representative on Kelowna’s Community Advisory Board on Homelessness, demonstrating his dedication to local advocacy efforts.

Wilbur’s leadership extends throughout the community. He previously served as president of the Kelowna Pride, Fierté Canada Pride, and Living Positive Resource Centre boards, and played a pivotal role in establishing Kelowna’s Etcetera 2SLGBTQ youth group. His diverse background encompasses leadership roles in various organizations, from large corporations to community-driven initiatives.
