Science

One of our goals at Autism Speaks and Autism Speaks Canada is to identify and support promising research; and from these efforts, we hope to produce significant findings that will be reported in peer-reviewed journals. We also hope that grants we fund will lead to additional research support from government or other funding agencies. 

  • Autism Speaks and Autism Speaks Canada have committed over $200 million to leading research.
  • Autism Speaks Canada's fundraising efforts have supported over $6.2 million to Canadian science and research since 2010

Family Services and Community Grants

Family Services Image 1Recognizing that there are multiple needs in the expansive and varied autism community, the focus of Autism Speaks Canada Family Services Community Grants is on proposals that serve to build the field of services for individuals with autism and expand the capacity to effectively serve this growing community. In particular, we are interested in proposals that address the needs of underserved communities and geographies.

  • Autism Speaks and Autism Speaks Canada have committed over $8 million to Family Services and Community Grants.
