Els for Autism Canada accepts grant requests throughout the year.  As funds raised in each province, remain in their respective provinces, we are currently accepting grant requests for organizations based in British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario for 2019. Funds raised may also be used to disseminate Els for Autism Foundation programs and services and to support our global outreach mission.




Grant applicants must meet the following criteria:


1. Applicant must have run programs (not necessarily the program for which they are applying for funding) for at least 3 years.

2. Applicant must be a non-profit organization in good standing with the federal government of Canada and most possess a valid CRA charity number.

3. Applicant must be registered as a non-profit in the province/territory in which they provide services.

4. Access to programs provided with funds from Els for Autism Canada must be free or provided under a fee scale that assesses the participant’s ability to pay.

5. Funding is provided only for programs that provide therapy, support, education and/or public awareness for and about people diagnosed on the autism spectrum, and their families.  Other initiatives might be funded on a case-by-case basis.

6. Grant recipients are required to conduct a 30 to 45 minute live webinar on the Els for Autism Foundation’s on-line learning platform that will be recorded and added to the Foundation’s on-line library.

7. Grant recipients must also complete a Donation Documentation Form and provide photos and/or videos of the supported program by November 15, 2019
