Autism Canada

Autism Canada has been the hub of knowledge and understanding about Autism Spectrum Disorder in Canada since 1976.

This national website contains a wealth of information about autism:

Our mandate is to work collaboratively with our provincial and territorial organizations, associations and societies to champion ASD priorities.   We curate the exchange of information between individuals with ASD, families, professionals, researchers, governments and the public.  Autism Canada actively encourages the sharing of best practices and programs, and advocates passionately for Canadians living with autism. 

Autism Canada is a robust and efficient organization with hope, vision and a commitment to make a real difference for Canadians living with autism and their families. Working together with a Provincial and Territorial Council, made up of autism organizations from coast to coast, we bring national initiatives forward so that our collective voice is heard. 

The strategic objectives of Autism Canada focus on changing the future for those living with autism and their families. We are committed to creating and advocating for universal access to the best treatments, services and supports.
