Canucks Autism Network runs programs all over the Lower Mainland – from Chilliwack all the way through to Vancouver and the time commitment each week is generally 1-2 hours per program.
We offer programs like Skate, Swimming, Gymnastics, Active/Multisport (gym-based), etc.
Our Support Workers work 1:1 with participants to keep them encouraged and engaged throughout the session.
All programs have been updated to be covid-safe through individualized stations. Masks are worn by all staff and there is plenty of sanitizing of both hands and equipment throughout each session.
Experience working with this population is not required as we offer training to all new staff. For Skate programs we ask that everyone is comfortable on the ice and for Swim programs we ask that everyone is comfortable in the water. We are not looking for star athletes!
