Petition to the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs
Autism spectrum disorder is a pervasive disorder, which affects one in sixty-eight people;
The goal is to acquire a report of Urban Aboriginal Children with Autism and details of the wait list of care for off-reserve children;
It would be helpful for the Trudeau government to work with the provinces and territories and stakeholders to develop a pan-Canadian strategy for Autism spectrum disorder, including, awareness and education campaigns, child, and adolescent and adult intervention innovative funding arrangements for financing therapy, surveillance, respite care, community initiatives, and research.
We, the undersigned, Canadian citizens, call upon the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs to present findings to the Standing Senate Committee on Aboriginal Peoples.
