What is Raise The Flag?


Autism Ontario’s Raise the Flag campaign, through the simple act of raising a flag, unites families, schools, communities, government and professionals in recognizing World Autism Awareness Day, and brings to light to struggles and triumphs of people on the autism spectrum.  Our campaign also features educational toolkits for educators from primary through to post-secondary school.


Autism Ontario is excited to have you participate and celebrate with us. Through this initiative, we are building stronger, more inclusive communities for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We are highlighting the work done throughout the province, and the work that still needs to be done to ensure that children, youth and adults living with ASD are provided the means to achieve quality of life. Thank you for being part of this momentous day with us!   World Autism Awareness Day falls on Easter Monday, April 2 in 2018, so celebrations will be held on Tuesday, April 3, 2018.

Who is Autism Ontario?

Autism Ontario is the province’s largest collective voice representing the autism community, supporting thousands of families across the province through its 25 Chapters; each of which is under the leadership of committed and skilled volunteers who provide expertise and guidance to their local communities. We are dedicated to providing ASD information and education, supporting research, and advocating for programs and services.

We work to increase public awareness about autism and the day-to-day challenges faced by people with autism, their families and the professionals with whom they interact. Last year, over 20,000 people accessed our services and supports, including children and adults with autism, their parents and siblings.

About Autism Ontario - Peel Chapter 
The Peel Chapter is directed and managed by a dedicated core of (mostly) parent volunteers. Being a non-profit organization, the chapter does not receive any government funding. All Chapter administrative functions are supported by the volunteers, donations from the community and fundraising initiatives. In addition to providing resources, support and funding, we also run about 100 events per year in the Peel Region for our families.

We hope that you can join us this year and Raise The Flag in your community in support of people with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families on World Autism Awareness Day!
