On May 10, 2022, the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences (CAHS) released the Assessment on Autism report: “Autism in Canada: Considerations for future public policy development.“
We are encouraged to see that the complex issues faced by Autistic people in Canada and their families are raised in this report. Findings in this report are aligned with the issues that we and our members have been advocating for over the past decade. We look forward to ongoing collaboration with the federal government to act on the report to expedite the development of an impactful National Autism Strategy for Autistic people, their families, and those who support them. Stay tuned as we announce opportunities for how our members can take action.
