Feds invest $2 million into Autism Spectrum Disorder working group


The federal government’s plan to create a Canadian Autism Partnership will see $2 million invested in an 11-member working group tasked with consulting residents across the country.

The Autism Spectrum Disorder working group will consist of a broad range of stakeholders from across Canada. Key autism organizations, front line service providers, health care professionals dedicated to providing care and treatment and top autism researchers make up this newly formed committee.

“Canadians can expect the working group to consult broadly and engage stakeholders, including those affected by ASD, and to report back on how Canadians of all ages living with ASD can be supported to reach their full potential,” said Cynthia Carroll, Chair of the Canadian Autism Spectrum Disorder Alliance and member of the working group.
