Autism Ontario: Waterloo Chapter

Autism Ontario Waterloo Region

Autism Ontario (formerly Autism Society Ontario) is the leading source of information and referral on autism and one of the largest collective voices representing the autism community. Members are connected through a volunteer network of Chapters throughout the Province of Ontario.We are guided by a Board of Directors, composed primarily of parents of individuals with autism, plus a host of volunteers and respected professionals who provide expertise and guidance to the Society on a volunteer basis. Autism Ontario is dedicated to increasing public awareness about autism and the day-to-day issues faced by individuals with autism, their families, and the professionals with whom they interact. The association and its chapters share common goals of providing information and education, supporting research, and advocating for programs and services for the autism community.

Our Vision:

Acceptance and opportunities for all individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Our Mission:

To ensure that each individual with ASD is provided the means to achieve quality of life as a respected member of society.
 

Our 6 Key Areas of Focus:

  1. Advocacy and Support
  2. Research
  3. Best Practices
  4. Government Relations
  5. Public Awareness
  6. Governance

Chapter Goals:

  1. To provide social events and opportunities for people living within Waterloo Region.
  2. To provide support and information to individuals and caregivers living with ASD.

Membership:

Autism Ontario started over 40 years ago as a small group of parents who wanted to create opportunity and acceptance for people with autism. Today our membership gives you the support of a provincial organization, along with a local network of friends.

The more members we have, the more influential we are when advocating for the rights of people affected by autism. Members understand the impact that autism has on people's lives and can help us to shape the work that we do.
 

Check out all the benefits of annual membership online.

There are now discounts available from several Ontario Attractions for our members and the list is growing.

So we urge you to check out all that we have to offer and know that by supporting your local chapter, you're supporting local families.
