Please Endorse "Canada Needs a REAL National Autism Strategy "

There are HUGE discrepancies from one province to another in Canada when it comes to the availability of ABA and evidence based treatments for autism disorders. Alberta has long had top tier funding of ABA treatment. New Brunswick has done well with much more limited resources but is need of shoring up. Nova Scotia has an immoral lottery system that determines which autistic children receive autism treatment and which do not. Some provinces and territories, even Ontario traditionally a leader in Canada is in desperate need of assistance in addressing Canada's autism crisis as many of Ontario's autistic children languish on interminable waiting lists. Canada needs a REAL National Autism Strategy and we needed it yesterday.

Please visit Parliament2 Top Priorities for Canada, register and endorse Canada Needs a REAL National Autism Strategy.
