Creating a supportive and inclusive Ontario for autism.

The Parade of Lights is set to make its way to Thunder Bay, bringing gifts of the season to the community, and once again, Autism Ontario is proud to be a beneficiary of the parade, this year taking place on December 2, 2023.

With a long history of participating in the Parade of Lights, we are looking for volunteers to join us in float decorating, tear-down, and donation collection during the parade.

If you are 16 years old and older and interested in volunteering for the parade, we welcome you to contact us to become involved.

Specific dates for volunteering are:

December 2 (evening) Donation Collection

December 3 (morning) Float Tear Down

* Volunteer hours will be signed off and provided for students *

Please note that volunteers over the age of 18 are required to submit a criminal records check to us. Those under the age of 18, will need to have their parents’ permission to participate. Details will be sent following application.
