The Les & Kae Martin Bursary Program 

The Les & Kae Martin Foundation is committed to expanding access to quality programming for high needs adults with autism. Through the Les & Kae Martin Bursary Program, GCA is providing fully funded respite, recreational programming and transportation to the centre for adults requiring 1:1 support. 

Inclusive Employment 

Together with our dedicated partners, GCA is building a more inclusive and neurodiverse workforce. We support autistic youth and adults to attain meaningful employment through accessible pre-employment training, job coaching, and supported job placements. 

Social Engagement

GCA’s Social Engagement partners are fostering community connections and reducing the risk of isolation for autistic individuals of all ages by subsidizing program fees for Social Skills Groups, PEERS® Online and Adult Social Club.  

Capacity Building

With funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund, GCA is completing renovations to increase capacity and accessibility at our Centre.  

Summer Camps

Each year, the Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund provides opportunities for high needs children to attend GCA Summer Camp by subsidizing program fees for families.
