Autism Edmonton enhances the lives of people on the autism spectrum, through knowledge, services and inclusive opportunities.


2017 Opening Doors for Autism Gala was a night to remember!

The Autism Edmonton's most important fundraising event took place on October 27, 2017, at the Northlands Expo Centre and was an unprecedented success with over 500 guests in attendance! 
We were fortunate to receive support from many local organizations, led by our title sponsor - Cameron Corporation. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, donors and sponsors, the Gala raised over 550,000.
Fundraising aside, our Gala’s goal was to raise awareness, acceptance, and understanding of autism and issues faced both by people on the spectrum and their families. Moreover, we aimed to engage new individuals and organizations who care about people with autism and want to invest in their future.
The event was a massive undertaking, made possible only through the heartfelt dedication and hard work of our volunteers, staff, board members, and our outstanding Gala Committee. 
Congratulations to this year’s “Opening Doors for Autism” Award recipient, is Isabel Henderson. Isabel was chosen based on the ongoing significant difference she has made for people with Autism, throughout her leadership as the Senior Operating Officer at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital. Read On.
We invite you to check out a video that was screened at the Gala. It aims to draw attention to the growing need for supports and services for adults with autism. 

Thank you to all of our sponsors!
