Car Nation Canada is Proud to Support Autism Ontario
Our Vision: Acceptance and opportunities for all individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Our Mission: To ensure that each individual with ASD is provided the means to achieve quality of life as a respected member of society.
Autism Ontario (formerly Autism Society Ontario) is the leading source of information and referral on autism and one of the largest collective voices representing the autism community. Members are connected through a volunteer network of Chapters throughout the Province of Ontario.
The organization is guided by a Board of Directors, composed primarily of parents of individuals with autism, plus a host of volunteers and respected professionals who provide expertise and guidance to the organization on a volunteer basis.
Autism Ontario is dedicated to increasing public awareness about autism and the day-to-day issues faced by individuals with autism, their families, and the professionals with whom they interact. The association and its chapters share common goals of providing information and education, supporting research, and advocating for programs and services for the autism community.

On April 17, May 1 and May 15, the Car Nation Canada team joined over 2,100 other teams and 21,000 walkers from across Ontario to participate in the 2011 MS Walk. This year we were really excited to help raise over,$5,000,000 The Walk is the MS Society's largest pledge-based fundraiser involving over 60,000 participants and volunteers in more than 160 communities across Canada in the spring and early fall. The Walk began in 1991 and is now one of the most important events for the MS Society. The proceeds of which have gone to fund research towards a cure, and for vital services for people currently living with MS.
