Welcome to Autism Ontario Sault Ste. Marie Chapter
Our Vision: Acceptance and opportunities for all individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Our Mission: To ensure that each individual with ASD is provided the means to achieve quality of life as a respected member of society.
Our 6 Key Areas of Focus
- Advocacy and Support
- Best Practices
- Government Relations
- Public Awareness
Autism Ontario (formerly Autism Society Ontario) is the leading source of information and referral on autism and one of the largest collective voices representing the autism community. Members are connected through a volunteer network of Chapters throughout the Province of Ontario.
We are guided by a Board of Directors, composed primarily of parents of individuals with autism, plus a host of volunteers and respected professionals who provide expertise and guidance to the organization on a volunteer basis.
Autism Ontario is dedicated to increasing public awareness about autism and the day-to-day issues faced by individuals with autism, their families, and the professionals with whom they interact. The association and its chapters share common goals of providing information and education, supporting research, and advocating for programs and services for the autism community.
Autism Ontario supports Chapters in most communities across Ontario, all of which are under the leadership of committed and skilled volunteers who organize and support parent to parent contact, provide official SEAC representation for ASD in boards of education, camps, and public awareness forums. We pride ourselves on our mission to ensure that each individual with ASD is provided the means to achieve quality of life as a respected member of society.
Your local Sault Ste Marie Chapter is committed to upholding not only the above mission and values, but to doing so within the context of our unique northern community.
