For the past several years, Autism Ontario has been engaged in consultations to assess the structure and needs of our growing organization. As part of this process, we are piloting a restructure covering Peel, Halton, North Halton, Waterloo, Wellington, Hamilton, and surrounding areas. We are very excited to kick off the project in spring 2019!
The pilot project is focused on increasing community engagement in each local area to produce greater consistency and availability of program, services, and events for individuals with ASD and their families in Central West.
This will be accomplished with the support of a regional oversight committee, supported by volunteers in each of the five areas. Selected members will help provide overall leadership regarding the pilot project, alongside provincial staff. In addition, local sub-committees will be developed for volunteers to engage with to help drive the conversations around key areas including events/programs, fundraising, advocacy, adult supports, and much more!
