ARC is community based non-profit organization that provides skill building, recreation and therapeutic programs using a person-centered, neuro-affirming approach. We have been providing programs designed empower the autistic community in Regina since 1976

​We are dedicated to supporting the autistic community by raising awareness, community engagement, supporting autistic led initiatives, collaborating with allies, and providing opportunities for self-advocacy and empowerment.

We offer a variety of programs for autistic adults aged 18 to 36. Additionally, we provide summer programs tailored for children and teenagers, along with year-round programming for teens.
