This inaugural public event promotes both awareness of autism and the coming together of community, individuals and government required to make life better for people and families aﬀected by autism. We share the same goal!
Autism ribbons will be handed out at noon. The event will take place from 12:15 to 12:45.
We are honoured to have as our keynote speaker Mr. Mike Lake, MP. Senator Jim Munson and Mr Glenn Thibeault, MP will be standing alongside Mike as they are all champions of people with autism and their families.
Please join us to show that by working together we can achieve a better life for people and families affected by autism.
