The Autism Society of B.C. was founded in 1975, making it one of Canada’s oldest autism organizations. Our goal is to contribute to making British Columbia the best possible province for the care, inclusion and acceptance of people affected by autism spectrum disorder.
With 1 in 68 children being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (a number that continues to rise around the globe) it is no longer a rarity. Autism will touch your life as well as those of your family, friends and neighbours. Thankfully this is no longer an insurmountable challenge. The work being done in the field of autism is helping to create best-practices that improve the way we all live, learn and organize ourselves. So join us!
