Welcome to Autism Ontario's Halton Chapter!
This Halton Chapter site is managed by volunteers from the Halton Chapter Leadership Council (CLC) of Autism Ontario. We are a small group of dedicated volunteers, many of whom have children on the Autism Spectrum. We organize free and subsidized programs, activities and workshops for families in our community.
Facebook: This is our quickest way to get information out to you. We also post many other resources and community events on our Facebook page that we do not post here on the website. Visit us at www.facebook.com/autismhalton and our page is called “Autism Ontario Halton Chapter”.

Looking for Volunteers
Did you know that our chapter is completely volunteer run?
At Autism Ontario we have Chapters throughout the province which are run by volunteers called the Chapter Leadership Council, or CLC. The chapter draws its membership from parents, other family members, and professionals with a commitment to helping others affected by ASD. The CLC is a dedicated group of volunteers that share their time, energy and talent to oversee the Chapter’s general operations, plan and manage activities, and strive to fulfil Autism Ontario's mission to “ensure that each individual with ASD is provided the means to achieve quality of life as a respected member of society.”
Each year, our Chapter organizes programming and activities for our members to socialize and play, and to simply be themselves. Some past programs include: Sensory-Friendly movies, sports programs, various indoor activities throughout the community, a Nature Program at Mountsberg etc., as well as Advocacy workshops for parents. These events require a wide variety of volunteer roles.
Consider joining our CLC! It’s a volunteer position with a year’s commitment. Join us and:
help us plan events and activities,
volunteer at an event,
lend a hand with administrative work,
update our website and social media sites,
do fundraising, or
sign up for a planning committee
We are happy to have them join our team! The commitment involves approximately 6 hours a month usually in the evening and/or weekend. It is a great way to build up your resume!
Our Annual General Meeting is coming up on April 22nd, so please consider coming out to join our team!
If you are interested, or have any questions, please email email@example.com for more information.
