International Autism Foundation (IAF) is a not for profit organization located in Canada. A group of parents from a quaint remote Northern British Columbia town founded IAF in 1994. Their purpose at that time was to independently address the needs of their children with Autism enrolled in a local elementary school.
Since then IAF evolved into an organization focused on reaching out to clients with Autism through its Canadian Special Education Missions (CSEM) projects outside Canada. A volunteer group of parents manage its resources and activities. IAF is a foundation in good standing with the Federal government of Canada and the Provinical government of British Columbia.
