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 through a rigorous review process, through a community panel of autistic individuals, family members, friends, service providers and research experts across Canada. Since 2010, we have granted $5 million to over 300 organizations across Canada. Approximately 36% of these grants help support our mission objective of ensuring access to reliable information and services throughout the lifespan.
