Program Registration Policy

Our programs and events (“Programs”) are intended for individuals and their families living with Autism Spectrum Disorder. All Program participants (“Participants”) must first be registered through the CAN Membership Program at http://canucksautismregistration.ca/account/create, and meet all specified Program requirements (outlined in the Program criteria). We reserve the right to refuse registration if the Participant does not meet the required criteria.

(a)                Refunds

We do not offer refunds. Under extenuating circumstances, the choice to refund, in whole or in part, is solely at our discretion. In the event of a discrepancy or error with your online transaction, please contact info@canucksautism.ca.

(b)               Photographs

Submission of a photograph may be required for Program registration. A submitted photograph must only contain the image of the prospective Participant, and must be reasonably up to date. By uploading a photograph, you represent, warrant and agree that it does not contain unlawful or inappropriate content, and that you have the right to send us the picture.

(c)                Cancellation

We reserve the right to cancel Programs, such as due to inclement weather, facility cancellation, low enrolment, if we cannot provide a safe environment, or other events beyond our reasonable control (the status of Programs will be confirmed on this Site or through communications).

            (d)       Prior Notification

Program attendance is important to us. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse future registration for all confirmed Participants who are absent from a Program without prior notification, or who cancel less than 7 days before a Program start date.

Please review all of our Program policies prior to registering in any of our Programs, available here: http://www.canucksautism.ca/About_Us/Policies.htm


Persons under the age of 19 (“children”) must have a parent or guardian register for an account and for Programs on their behalf.
