The only Canadian organization with a national perspective on the issues currently facing those with ASD, their families and other stakeholders. Autism Canada has been the hub of knowledge
and understanding about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Canada since 1976.
Autism Canada is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and affiliated with a professional advisory committee, an ASD advisory committee and a Provincial and Territorial network that span the entire country and work collaboratively to share best practices, build consensus and help inform the public health policy.
Our work also includes a dedicated Family Support Representative, an annual free, online conference by autistics for autistics, and a first of its kind training for first responders and emergency personnel called Search and Rescue for Autism (SARA).
