Pacific Autism Family Network

Our GoodLife Fitness Family Autism hub is designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and families.

LAUNCH 2023

Pacific Autism Family Network is thrilled to invite you to support British Columbia's autistic and neurodiverse community at the 5th annual LAUNCH Holiday Luncheon taking place at the beautiful Westin Bayshore Hotel Vancouver on December 7th, 2023.

At Pacific Autism Family Network (PAFN), we provide an open, unique and collaborative environment for autism service providers, organizations, clinicians and researchers.

In this way, PAFN is helping to provide a convenient, “one-stop-shop” for families, and the opportunity for all stakeholders to work together towards new solutions. We are proud to have these organizations & programs listed below housed in our Hub and part of our collaborative network.

Programs include AIDE Canada, Able Development Clinic, AIMS Clinic, Employment Works, Autism Support Network, JET, and many more.
