Who We Are – What We Do

Els for Autism-Canada is a Canadian-based organization committed to helping people diagnosed on the autism spectrum live healthy, productive lives.  The organization was created by pro-golfer Ernie Els – a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame.  Ernie and his wife Liezl have been active in organizations providing assistance to people diagnosed on the autism spectrum since 2007 – shortly after their son, Ben, was diagnosed.  They have lent their support to organizations in the United States, South Africa and the United Kingdom to provide assistance for schools, therapy programs and to increase awareness of autism spectrum disorders.

Establishment of the Canadian organization is a continuation of those efforts. It focuses on the needs of Canadians diagnosed on the autism spectrum, and their families.  All the money the organization raises that supports program activities will be used to assist Canadian organizations and programs.  Program support will provide services in the province or territory in which the funds were raised.

Autism is a challenge for those affected by it, their families and the communities in which these Canadians live.  Together we can increase awareness, provide resources and work toward providing environments in which people with autism spectrum disorders can thrive.
