Programs for Children, Youth, Adults & Families with Autism Opportunities:
Canucks Autism Network (CAN) provides programs for individuals with autism and their families, while promoting acceptance and inclusion through community engagement and training initiatives across BC and beyond. Stay up-to-date on summer program details and registration dates by signing up for our monthly newsletter at canucksautism.ca/ newsletter! The most recent CAN Program Guide can always be found at canucksautism.ca/programs.
For children with autism (ages 3-12), our programming focuses on sports and rec opportunities. For youth and adults with autism (ages 13-17 and 18+) our programming focuses on providing opportunities to develop physical and mental health, arts and technology, work and volunteer skills, and social and life skills. We also offer Family Events (all ages) that provide opportunities for families with autism to enjoy a wide range of activities together throughout the year (i.e movie matinees, outdoor rec events, etc.).
*Become a CAN member in order to access program registration by visiting: canucksautism.ca/join. Some programs require members to pay a highly subsidized fee which vary by program and length as a means to ensure program sustainability. CAN does not wish a fee to act as a barrier to participation – please see payment options by visiting: canucksautism.ca/payment.
Autism Training Opportunities:
We provide training and accessibility resources for many sectors, including sport, recreation, first responders, schools, and a range of community spaces. To learn about customized training solutions, please visit: canucksautism.ca/training.
