ACT has compiled a listing of not-for-profit organizations and government-funded agencies from across British Columbia as a community service to those seeking help or looking for professionals with experience with Autism Spectrum Disorders. 

This listing is for your information but does not constitute ACT’s endorsement of specific service providers, agencies or organizations. We welcome additional information about services available throughout the province. Please send your information to info@actcommunity.net

Our list is divided into four regions, which have been aligned with Community Living BC's service areas.
