Today, public health officials estimate that 1 in every 68 children in Canada is growing up on the autism spectrum. It is a reality that affects millions of families every day, from the classroom to the job market- hundreds of families here in our municipality. And while we are making progress in supporting Canadians with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), we are only beginning to understand the factors behind the challenges they face.

We are thrilled that The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo  recognizes and supports  these individuals, families and supports that live with ASD in our community.
