Membership Opportunities

Autism Ontario began in 1973 with a small group of parents who wanted to create opportunities and acceptance for people with autism. Today, Autism Ontario is made up of individuals, families, professionals, and service providers who enjoy the support of a provincial organization along with a network of local communities.

The more members we have, the stronger our voice and the greater our impact! When you join Autism Ontario, you play a vital role in helping us shape the work we do to ensure that each individual with ASD is provided the means to achieve quality of life as a respected member of society.
