Autistics United Canada is a grassroots, Autistic-led organization dedicated to improving the lives of Autistic Canadians through self-advocacy. We are committed to:
-Self-advocacy and autonomy: Ensuring that autistic voices across Canada are heard in cultural and political conversations about autism, so that policies include and value all autistic people.
-Improving the well-being of autistic people: Advocating for access and self-determination for all autistic people, including healthcare, education, support services, and community networks across the lifespan.
-Changing the cultural narrative about autism: Promoting autistic culture, creating safer autistic spaces and fostering pride, to change the cultural narrative about autism from one of tragedy and normalization to one of support and acceptance.
-Inclusion and accessibility for all
-Equality across different disabilities, ages, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, religions, social classes, and nationalities
-Active respect, acceptance, and pride
-Autonomy and self-determination
-Collaboration, community, and peer support
We strive to facilitate our autistic peers to take control of their own lives and take part in the decisions that affect our lives and our community.
