Partner with us

Autism Alliance of Canada encourages a diversity of thought and ongoing dialogue. By engaging pan-Canadian networks, fostering communities of practice, hosting the Canadian Autism Leadership Summit, and welcoming members across the country, Autism Alliance of Canada collaborates with partners to create impact across disabilities, diagnoses and identities.

A concern that frequently emerges as I review federal policy is the exclusion of first voices from social policy development. I make it my mission to change this; partnering with organizations like Autism Alliance of Canada helps make that possible.
