York Region

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

Community Spotlight

The programs at the York Chapter would not be possible without the support of the community and fundraising initiatives.  Bingo World is one of our amazing partners!  Funds from Bingo World help us subsidize our program fees and help us to buy supplies to ensure everyone is successful in our programs.

Each week, Chapter members volunteer their time to help out at the bingo hall.  It is the most fun you will have volunteering!  The excitement of seeing someone win the jackpot and the friendly faces you will meet makes the time fly by.  If you are interested in volunteering with this program, contact our Chapter Manager Laura at chaptermgr.york@autismontario.com to find out more.
