International Autism Foundation (IAF) is a privately owned 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. With its Federal and Provincial registration, IAF began its services to school children diagnosed with Autism in several schools in British Columbia.
IAF is a funding organization focused on reaching out to clients with Autism through its Canadian Special Education Missions (CSEM) projects outside Canada. A volunteer group for each program manages the resources and activities of IAF.
