Children’s Autism Federation of B.C. (CAFBC) was founded as a grassroots organization to hold the government accountable for policy decisions surrounding individual autism funding in British Columbia (B.C.).
As we continue to navigate through the political and ethical issues surrounding any shift in a service delivery model, the Children’s Autism Federation of B.C. remains focused on ensuring that all autistic children and their families have their voices amplified and their needs understood.
CAFBC will continue to hold the government accountable for any change that will negatively impact children in the autism community
and continue to bring awareness to these issues.
Children's Autism Federation of BC has focused on advocacy and support for a service delivery model that truly encompasses the needs of all autistic children.
We are non-profit organization that receives no government funding.
The primary focus being the importance of retaining individual funding and timely diagnosis.
CAFBC also supports families throughout their pre to post-diagnosis journey.
We have provided recommendations to the Government on a framework for children and youth with support needs.
Most recently, CAFBC launched our Research and Support Division. This enables families to find resources and support within a one-stop-shop delivery model. Families may access support for the application of autism funding, advocacy-related resources or even autism-related recommendations.
The Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) has paused the Family Connection Centres for further consultation and engagement.
During that time, four pilots will run.
