This special Autism Acceptance Game will showcase the successes of Canucks Autism Network participants, while promoting acceptance of autism throughout the evening.

As with every Rogers Arena event, there are a number of accessibility initiatives available to guests with autism and other sensory sensitivities. Learn more at the Vancouver Canucks’ Autism Accessibility webpage.

About the Teams

A total of 12 teams from across BC will be participating, with players ranging in age (8-34) and disabilities, but united by their shared passion for hockey.

In order to ensure that everyone has a positive experience, opposing coaches talk in advance of each game to strategize and match lines so that all players have a safe experience with an appropriate level of challenge.

To accommodate sensory sensitivities, a whistle replaces the loud buzzer for goals and line changes are signaled with a whistle and verbal countdown.
