OCTOBER 22-24, 2021 | DOUG MITCHELL THUNDERBIRD ARENA, UBC
This first-class event brings together weekend warriors and corporate teams with NHL Alumni for an unforgettable weekend of hockey and camaraderie in support of Canucks Autism Network (CAN).
Canucks Autism Network (CAN) was founded in 2008 by Vancouver Canucks Co-Owners Paolo and Clara Aquilini, with the goal of enriching the quality of life of BC individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. Today, CAN is recognized as a provincial leader in the field of sports and rec programming for individuals on the spectrum.
Through specialized support techniques, parent collaboration, and highly supportive staff and volunteers, CAN is able to ensure that every individual is successful on their own terms, regardless of their level of need. Beyond sports and rec, we’ve expanded our programs to include opportunities in arts & technology, life & social skills, mental health and a rapidly growing Employment Programs & Services department. CAN is also committed to promoting understanding, acceptance and inclusion through community engagement and training initiatives across BC. https://www.canucksautism.ca/
