Autism Aware


Canucks Autism Network is proud to be a leader in providing autism training to the community.

Autism Aware is a CAN initiative that aims to educate and empower businesses and establishments to be more inclusive and supportive of families living with autism. The goal of the program is to provide families with opportunities for meaningful inclusion in all community activities.

We have partnered up with a number of groups to support projects and/or provide workshops to build capacity within the sector, including:

  • YVR International Airport Authority
  • Science World
  • BC Sports Hall of Fame
  • Rogers Arena
  • Sky Zone


Workshop topics include:

  • Autism 101 
  • Communication Tips
  • Challenges face by individuals with autism in community settings (sector specific)
  • Teaching Tools
  • Motivation and Behavior Support Strategies
  • Tips for Successful Inclusion
