Autism Alliance of Canada has partnered with Spero Careers Canada and the podcast Across the Desk to bring you a new series which highlights the work of Autism Alliance of Canada and those who work with us. Each podcast is approximately one hour long and is a conversationstyle interview. We cover topics such as the National Autism Strategy, employment, housing, and much more. New episodes will be posted on this page when available! You can listen to the podcast on Spotify, Soundcloud and Apple Podcasts!
