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, the disorder is no longer a rarity. Thankfully this is less of an insurmountable challenge than it once was. The work being carried out in the field is helping to create best-practices that improve the quality of life for those impacted by autism.
