Year-round family events vary by season and region, with all ages welcome.

Past Family Experiences have included water parks, visits to the farm, holiday light displays, mini golf, outdoor skates and more!

What can you expect?

We offer different types of Family Experiences, dependent on the facility and the nature of the activity.

These Family Experiences are more private, where the venue (or a part of the venue) is open exclusively to CAN families.

  • Obvious CAN branding on site (tents & signage)
  • CAN staff & volunteers on site to check families in and facilitate activities (support not provided)
  • Autism-friendly accommodations and/or resources available via CAN
  • Goal is for CAN families to benefit from smaller crowds and connect with each other

Example: At the Chilliwack Corn Maze, we book the entire venue for a private, less-crowded experience.

Who can participate?

  • Anyone with a CAN account and Family Experience Pass
  • Open to immediate family members only (ie. parents & siblings of the individual on the spectrum)
  • A family member with an autism diagnosis must be present.

The majority of attendees at CAN Family Experiences are children and youth on the spectrum and their families.

However, many Autistic adults also attend independently or with their immediate family members!
