About Us

The Pacific Autism Family Network is committed to being a provincial Knowledge Centre dedicated to addressing the lifelong needs of individuals with autism and related neurodiversities and their families throughout British Columbia. Our core purpose is to provide state-of-the-art resources, information, treatment and support to facilitate meaningful inclusion within the community and maximize everyone’s potential. Governed by the community and supported by professional advisory committees, we operate as a not-for-profit.

Our Aspirational Goal

Our aspirational goal is for British Columbia to become the premier destination for individuals with autism within the next decade. To achieve this vision of success, we will continue to deliver high-quality programs, foster innovative practices, forge partnerships with researchers and community professionals to maintain a cutting-edge research facility integral to our mission. Through these efforts, we aim to ensure individuals with autism receive the support they need to thrive across the lifespan.

Our Guiding Principles

Guided by our principals, we prioritize the active involvement of the entire autism community, foster collaboration between families, practitioners and researchers to ensure our services are tailored to individual and family needs. As a family-centred organization, we uphold a commitment to innovation, evidence-based practices and equitable access to services regardless of location or economic circumstance.
