Autism CanTech! (ACT!) is a national program that combines supportive programming for participants and employers with career coaching and innovative assistive technology to help Autistic youth gain long-term employment in the digital economy. In this program, participants learn entry-level employability and technical skills through four months of in-class coursework, two months of program-paid work experience, and a range of additional supports. Participants who complete the program might work in many fields in the digital economy such as education, finance, government, software, or healthcare.

This unique program is tailored to participants’ individual needs by  working with participants in small classes to help them learn practical work skills. The program also has Career Coaches ready to work with participants one-on-one. With the use of assistive technology, and a curriculum based on portfolio assessments, participants face as few barriers as possible.

ACT! participants will learn employability skills such as how to use communication and productivity tools, process management, and teamwork. Participants will also learn job-specific skills in one of three Job Categories developed to give them the skills needed to work in Canada’s Tech Sector, including data processing and data management, digital assessment management, and more.

The ACT! Program is honoured to teach and learn across many traditional and treaty lands including the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples of the QayQayt (KuhKite) and Kwikwetlem First Nations to the West; through the treatied lands and traditional territories of the Nehiyawak, Dene, Stoney Nakoda, Nakota Sioux, Tsuutina, Annishnabe, Metis, and Inuit; all the way to the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit in the Place of the Alders along the Humber River Watershed in the East. The Autism CanTech! Team is dedicated to ensuring that Indigenous voice is centered, honoured and respected. In this spirit, we invite you to reflect on your relationship to the lands on which you are currently located, and take action for positive change in your community in this time of reconciliation.
