The Ottawa Chapter is also an active participant on the Special Education Advisory Committees of both English and French language School Boards and makes frequent ASD Awareness presentations throughout the city. The Provincial Association lobbies strongly for the needs of ASD individuals in Ontario and was instrumental in obtaining government support for the Preschool Autism Program. Autism Ontario also obtained a provincial grant to develop the Regional Support Leaders program.

The work and needs of the Ottawa Chapter are ongoing. Donations to the Ottawa chapter are gratefully accepted. If you wish to make a donation on your membership form, please indicate "Ottawa Chapter" in the donation area to designate your gift to our chapter.
