Join us at the 10th Annual Canadian Autism Leadership Summit taking place in Ottawa (ON) and via livestream from April 17-19, 2024!
The Summit is the key community event where over 200 Autistic self-advocates, researchers, politicians, service providers, and policy makers from across Canada come together to discuss, debate and develop recommendations for policies and strategies that benefit Autistic people in Canada.
We will gather experts with updates on the National Autism Strategy (NAS) and the development of national disability policy for Canada that addresses the diverse needs of Autistic people and their families.
We will identify policies, programs, services and supports with the potential to strengthen the impact of the National Autism Strategy.
We will explore valuable processes, promising and emerging practices, ideas, and research that can advance our collective work.
Please note that session titles are subject to change. Stay tuned as we announce more updates on this page!
