AIDE Canada - The Initiative

Autism and/or Intellectual Disability Knowledge Exchange Network

AIDE (Autism and/or Intellectual Disability Knowledge Exchange Network) Canada is a federally funded initiative to the Pacific Autism Family Network that offers credible, reliable, and evidence-based resources tailored to impacted Canadian families and individuals. It reduces the regional disparities that Canadians face across the country and offers equitable access regardless of where you live.

Miriam Foundation was involved in the initial development of this unique initiative and is the Hub for the province of Québec.

This national program is comprised of four (4) components:

Resource Library: The library includes a vast, curated collection of credible, reliable, and evidence-based resources. The resources are clear, concise, and tailored to the general public. The Library also includes a section with academic papers and findings.

Electronic Asset Maps: This feature offers an online inventory of service providers, employment opportunities, available housing options and local programming and events.

Online Portal: The portal offers a client profile system where Canadians can input their personal details – including, but not limited to diagnosis, age, needs – and receive curated resources and research based on their profile.

Hub-to-Hub: The Hubs are a network of organizations that link the country. The exchange is built upon the touchpoints of “intervene early, intervene often, and intervene across the life span.
