The Monthly Youth & Adult Rec program provides an opportunity for youth and adults on the spectrum to get together, build social relationships, and have a good time.

Events and locations change each month to offer a range of activities that encourage community rec and social engagement. Past activities have included rock climbing, swimming, skating, snowshoeing, pizza parties, & more.

CAN is no longer requiring a formal autism diagnosis for individuals over 13 years of age who are interested in accessing programs or services. Learn more >> 

Program Structure

Staff and volunteers support participants as they engage socially and take part in fun, age appropriate activities.

  • Session activities vary from month-to-month.
  • Each session is a one-day program, which typically varies in time from 1.5hrs to 2.5hrs.
  • Sessions take place monthly throughout the year.
  • Each session consists of 5-10 participants who may be split into smaller groups.

Supports Provided

At Canucks Autism Network, we recognize that each individual on the autism spectrum is unique. All individuals across the autism spectrum are welcome in our programs.

We strive to meet the unique needs of each program participant through conversation and collaboration. Please do not hesitate to contact our Recreation Specialist at mark.comfort@canucksautism.ca with any questions.
