The Monthly Youth and Adult Program is an opportunity for youth and young adults with autism to get together, build social relationships, and have a good time. Events and locations change each month to offer a range of age appropriate activities that encourage social engagement.  Individuals across the autism spectrum are all welcome to participate.

Program Structure

Staff and volunteers support participants as they engage socially and take part in fun, age appropriate activities.

  • Session activities vary from month-to-month.
  • Each session is a one-day program, which typically varies in time from 1.5hrs to 2.5hrs.
  • Sessions take place monthly throughout the year.
  • Each session consists of up to 10 participants who may be split into smaller groups.

Supports Provided

At Canucks Autism Network, we recognize that each individual with autism is unique. All individuals across the autism spectrum are welcome in our programs.

We strive to meet the unique needs of each program participant through conversation and collaboration. Please do not hesitate to contact our Youth & Adult Program Coordinator at [email protected] with any questions.
