Our story…

COVID-19 has changed our lives, but one thing that is unchanged -- our support for children, teens and adults on the autism spectrum across Ontario. Your support for our team will enable us to continue our advocacy, research, education and family supports. This year your donation will help our adult community - with either a $500 scholarship for 2021, or for local or virtual activities our adults would like to participate in and lack financial resources. You WILL make a difference!


Autism Ontario has participated in the Toronto Scotiabank Charity Challenge since 2013, to raise funds for our work supporting over 135,000 Ontarians - of all ages - on the autism spectrum.

Autism Ontario, now in its 47th year, is a community-based advocacy organization with 25 Chapters throughout Ontario. Our mission is creating a supportive and inclusive Ontario for autism, and our vision is, “Best Life, Better World, Making Autism Matter.” 

The work we do helps all autistic individuals and families in their communities have access to meaningful supports, information, and connections so they are equitably and seamlessly supported across their life course. You are helping us make these a reality.
