Imperial Fortress Garrison

The Fortress walks for autism!

Volunteering for Autism Speaks Canada is an incredibly rewarding and unique experience. We are fortunate to have a dedicated and vibrant group of volunteers across the country, making special events like The Fortress Walk possible.

The Fortress Walk brought characters from the Star Wars universe to life on planet Earth. Thanks to The Imperial Fortress Garrison (Quebec division of the 501st Legion), the largest Star Wars costuming club, for volunteering your time, talent, and services to create this memorable event for Autism Speaks Canada.
