Peel Region

campers + staff at summer camp

The Peel Chapter has been serving families in Mississauga, Brampton, and Caledon since 1979. The work of our Chapter is done by the support of strong and dedicated volunteers who aim to provide relevant, applicable, and appropriate program, services, and advocacy opportunities to families, children, adults on the spectrum, family caregivers, professionals, teachers, and support workers. 

What we do:

  • To help our community learn about ASD, the Peel Chapter conducts special speaker and/or training workshops. These cover such topics as advocacy, support and the latest news in ASD Research. These courses are advertised by e-mail and our website.

  • Work with community partners to promote and enhance awareness about autism

  • Holds various fundraising events throughout the year, and run programs and events for individuals with ASD and their families to get involved, socialize and network
