Venue selection

ACT’s goal is to deliver cost effective training to family members, para-professionals and professionals who live and work with kids with autism. ACT benefits from favorable rates for conference facilities from Simon Fraser University’s Vancouver Campus.

ACT seeks funding and sponsorship to help with the additional costs of travelling outside the lower mainland. If you have ideas for sponsorship, please contact ACT at info@actcommunity.ca

Getting to the venue

Parking is expensive in downtown Vancouver, however the SFU Vancouver Campus vanue is very accessible by public transit. Contact Translink for directions and schedules for the West Coast Express, Skytrain, Seabus and bus routes.
