Family Services Community Grants

Every year in April we launch grants to autism service providers to increase their capacity and to effectively serve the autism community in Canada. Grants are selected using a rigorous review process, through a community panel of autistic individuals, family members, friends, service providers and research experts across Canada.

Research shows when intervention begins at a young age, communication and social skills improve for many children. Approximately 14% of these grants help support our mission objective of increasing early childhood screening and timely interventions.

“We are very proud to support the autism community in Canada through our Family Services Community Grants. Since 2010, we have granted $5 million to over 300 organizations across Canada to build capacity and serve the autism community.”

—Jill Farber, Executive Director, Autism Speaks Canada
