campers + staff at summer camp

Welcome to your York Region Autism Ontario Chapter! Our goal is to be a reliable source of information and support for all York Region citizens who have a connection to autism, including families, children, adults on the spectrum, caregivers, support workers, and teachers. 

What we do:

  • To help our community learn about ASD, the York Region 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

  • Run programs and events for individuals with ASD and their families to get involved, socialize and network
