New Ontario Autism Program - Advisory Committee

Ontario established an advisory committee of parents, stakeholders and other experts to provide advice on the key elements of the design and implementation of the new program. The Ontario Autism Program Advisory Committee continues to provide advice on how to seek input from other experts, including families, on the proposed program enhancements.

In the first phase of its work, the Ontario Autism Program Advisory Committee drafted a set of Outcomes and Guiding Principles for the program. The outcomes and principles form the foundation for the Committee's ongoing advice for enhancements to the Ontario Autism Program.

Summaries from the advisory committee’s monthly meetings are posted here.

Members of the committee

The government is committed to engaging broadly with families and caregivers throughout this process to implement a program that is responsive to children’s unique needs and delivered in a way that meets the needs of families. We have received significant feedback through our consultations with families, experts and providers that has been helpful as we develop our new program. The government will continue to collaborate with the committee to inform ongoing enhancements to the program.
