Accessibility is a core value at Canucks Autism Network (CAN).
We honour this value by striving to deliver our programs and events in environments that are barrier-free, safe and inclusive. We are also committed to alleviating any financial barriers to program participation.
As such, our annual membership fee remains at a low cost of $25 per individual with autism. Membership gives participants the ability to submit registration requests for CAN programs.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors and community partners, many of our programs are offered at no cost.
These include Family Events, Active, Multisport, Monthly & Weekly Youth & Adult programs.
Programs that do come with a fee are highly subsidized. For example, our six-week Skate program is $30.
CAN programs are unique in the level of support that is provided. Participants can be paired with trained staff and volunteers on a 1:1 ratio or higher, as needed. This high level of support ensures that lessons can be adapted to each participant’s needs.
Find more information on program fees by visiting CAN program webpages.
In addition to accessing programs at little to no cost, individuals with autism (ages 6-18) can use their Autism Funding to pay membership and program fees.
Learn more in our Program Policies & Payment Options webpage.
Individuals or families in need of additional financial assistance with CAN membership or program fees can request a fee reduction or waiver through the CAN Fee Assistance Program.
