What We Do
Our highly supported programs empower individuals with autism to build the confidence and skills necessary to enjoy a lifetime of sport and physical activity.
Through various training initiatives, we are able to further support families living with autism by building capacity in their local home communities.
We strive to foster awareness and understanding of autism to create more inclusive environments where families living with autism can feel understood, accepted, and supported in a range of community activities and spaces.
The Canucks Autism Network (CAN) is dedicated to providing year-round sports and recreation programs for children, teens, young adults and families living with autism, while increasing autism awareness and providing training workshops in communities across British Columbia.
CAN programs are delivered in safe and highly supported environments across the Lower Mainland, on the Island, and in the Interior. Individuals across the autism spectrum are welcome to participate.
Through specialized support techniques, parent collaboration, and a high ratio of trained staff and dedicated volunteers, we are able to ensure that every individual with autism is successful on their own terms, regardless of their level of need.
