About the Journal
Established in December 2020, the Canadian Journal of Autism Equity is an open-access e-journal focused on critically engaging with a variety of equity discussions within the autism community and public policy. Seeking authorship primarily by first-voice Autistic people or people with lived experience with autism and intersectionality, the Journal seeks to offer a platform to amplify marginalized voices and share these perspectives with decision-makers and Canadians alike.
CJAE is currently published once each year, in April following World Autism Acceptance Day.
This third edition of the Canadian Journal of Autism Equity (CJAE) features works primarily about the role of autistics in decision-making, inclusion of autistic voices in policy-making, and the overall importance of lived experiences.
