Asked Questions

What is Celebrate the Spectrum?

Celebrate the Spectrum is an opportunity for positive action to provide spaces of support and advocacy for our diverse communities while learning about autism and how we can all make our communities better and more inclusive places for people on the autism spectrum.

What if I still want to raise a flag?

We know the flags are beloved and an important symbol of celebration and unity for our community in creating a supportive and inclusive Ontario for autism.

If you would still like to raise a flag because it’s the way to Celebrate the Spectrum that most speaks to you, please feel free to do so.

How do I participate in this year’s World Autism Day events if I’m not raising a flag?

Find out how to get involved and join us as we Celebrate the Spectrum for World Autism Day across the entire Province of Ontario in the leadup to April 2, 2023, and throughout the month of April.

Autism Ontario is excited to have you participate and celebrate with us. Thank you for being part of this momentous day with us!
