Programs that support the mind & body

Your support will help us provide vital physical and mental health programming to 125 families annually. Join us in our mission to enhance the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. Challenge yoursef, make an impact!


At SAAAC, we recognize that the well-being of children with autism is closely linked to their parents’. That’s why our CARES program focuses on providing parents and siblings with the tools they need to care for themselves and their loved ones. By creating a supportive environment where caregivers can share their experiences and prioritize their mental health, we can help families thrive and break the negative cycle of crises that can affect everyone.


Let’s help children and youth on the autism spectrum become more active and live healthier lives! Your donation to our Walk-A-Thon will support our Functional Fitness program, which teaches fundamental movement skills that can be applied to everyday life. We will also empower caregivers with knowledge and strategies to promote physical literacy with their children and make physical activity a lifelong pursuit!



The SAAAC Autism Centre is a Toronto based charity whose mission is to
make autism services equitable for all Canadians. The Centre provides culturally responsive autism services targeting culturally and linguistically diverse families. Using a multi-disciplinary approach,
our Centre offers a dynamic range of services that support the development of individuals on the autism spectrum at all life stages, along with their caregivers. The Centre currently supports over 600 families across 18 programming streams.

A recent report by the Public Health Agency of Canada found that approximately 1 in 66 Canadians are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Chances are that you know someone living with ASD right now. Individuals with ASD require intensive, specialized support, and a diagnosis can be a source of emotional and financial stress for parents and caregivers.
However, it’s important to remember that with the right support and resources, individuals with ASD can lead fulfilling and meaningful lives. With your support we can work towards a future where every individual with ASD has access to the resources they need to thrive, and where parents and caregivers feel supported and empowered.
