YYJ Autism Aviation Day
Canucks Autism Network (CAN) is proud to partner with Victoria International Airport (YYJ), Air Canada & Air Canada Foundation to deliver Autism Aviation Day for individuals on the autism spectrum and their family members.
Autism Aviation Day is an opportunity to practice the airport experience, decrease anxiety associated with air travel, and to build confidence for future travel success.

- Victoria International Airport
Sign up is open until Sun, Apr 9!
What is Autism Aviation Day?
Autism Aviation Day will take attendees through the entire pre-flight process, including check-in, security, finding the gate, waiting, aircraft boarding, simulated take-off and de-planing, in a safe and supportive environment. Following the experience, a reception with snacks and refreshments will be provided.
The event builds on the success of previous “airport accessibility tours” we’ve hosted in partnership with Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and Kelowna International Airport (YLW).
Who can attend?
This event is open to all individuals on the autism spectrum and their family members (both non-members and registered CAN members).
Please note there are a limited number of spaces available. Due to the popularity of this event, we anticipate that we will not be able to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend. All applicants will be notified of their enrollment status by Thursday, April 13.
This event is also made possible with support from AutismBC, Travel with Ange, Beaches Resorts, Royal Caribbean & Visit Huntington Beach.
