Canucks Autism Network (CAN) provides programs for individuals with autism and their families, while promoting acceptance and inclusion through community engagement and training initiatives across BC and beyond.

CAN was founded in 2008 by Vancouver Canucks Co-Owners Paolo and Clara Aquilini, whose son Christian has autism. Offering over 500 programs annually, CAN has impacted over 4,700 individuals with autism province-wide.

With 1 in 46 children diagnosed with autism in BC, the need for support is greater than ever. To learn more, visit
