Autistics 4 Autistics Onatrio (A4A)
Autistic Self Advocacy in Ontario
Autistics for Autistics Ontario (A4A) is a collective of autistic adults advocating for reform to autism funding and services, provincially and federally. We are self-advocates, meaning that neither our parents nor service providers advocate “for” us. We are proudly autistic, united on the issues that impact our community.
We are an international affiliate of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN). We are also members of the Autistic Advocacy Coalition of Canada (AACC), with Autistics United Canada and London Autistics Standing Together. Through our work in AACC, we advocate for our federal government to consult with autistic self-advocacy groups when developing the policies that affect our lives.

London Autistics Standing Together (LAST)
Empowering Autistic People To Make Positive Social Change.
LAST is a grassroots, peer-support, and self advocacy organization, entirely run by Autistic people.
We formed in 2016 in response to a lack of support for adults on the Autism spectrum, as well as a lack of intersectionality in mainstream Autism organizations.
We currently run a peer support group for Autistic adults, and we are looking to expand what we do to include more advocacy for disability rights, as well as education for the broader community about Autism, and Autistic rights, and to provide social opportunities for people on the spectrum.
