The new Canucks Autism Network (CAN) Membership Benefits Program allows members to take advantage of a variety of exclusive benefits including special offers, discounted admission, and enhanced accessibility at partnered facilities across the province.
CAN members can access their digital membership card through the My Account page of their online account. Membership cards can be downloaded and saved to a mobile device or printed and presented as a hard copy. The name of the participant(s) with autism will appear on the card, however, it can be used by the individual and their immediate family members.
CAN Membership Benefits Partners
The pilot phase of the CAN Membership Benefits Program launched in April of 2017, with the introduction of select CAN Membership Benefits Partners. With time, the goal is to introduce CAN member benefits in communities across the province.
While CAN Membership Benefits Partners have an attitude of acceptance and a willingness to learn, we ask that CAN members recognize that staff at participating businesses and locations will not have extensive autism training and may not be able to identify that a customer is on the autism spectrum.
What is Autism Aware?
Autism Aware is an initiative that aims to educate and empower businesses and establishments to be more inclusive and accepting with the goal of providing families living with autism with opportunities for meaningful inclusion in all community activities. Autism Aware partners have participated in autism training workshops and have made various business adaptations to better support customers on the autism spectrum and their families.
