OUR SPONSORS

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.

The Autism Society of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is pleased to announce the addition of our Ambassador Program. In partnership with Autism Society Alberta and supported by Autism Speaks Canada we are now prepared to assist you with connecting with the information you will need to navigate a diagnosis of ASD. We have 3 ambassadors working for our community to connect families with supports, programs, activities , advocate for you and create a better awareness in our region.
