Introducing the Autism CanTech! team

The Autism CanTech! Team is an amazing team of hardworking professionals who have a dedication and passion for serving the Autistic community, both due to lived experience and a desire to make a difference.

ACT! believes that we are who we include and that a diverse and inclusive environment leads to better services and a better workplace. By embodying this mindset as we work to grow our team, we embody the inclusion our program strives for and reflect the deep knowledge that an inclusive workforce is a workforce where diverse voices are heard. Equity, diversity, accessibility, and inclusion are the foundation upon which ACT! was built and are the key to our success as teachers, as learners, as developers, and as a business that always strives for more.

Treaty Acknowledgement


The ACT! Program is honoured to teach and learn across many traditional and treaty lands including the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples of the QayQayt (KuhKite) and Kwikwetlem First Nations to the West; through the treatied lands and traditional territories of the Nehiyawak, Dene, Stoney Nakoda, Nakota Sioux, Tsuutina, Annishnabe, Metis, and Inuit; all the way to the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit in the Place of the Alders along the Humber River Watershed in the East. The Autism CanTech! Team is dedicated to ensuring that Indigenous voice is centered, honoured and respected. In this spirit, we invite you to reflect on your relationship to the lands on which you are currently located, and take action for positive change in your community in this time of reconciliation.
