Welcome to HRM Bedford | Sackville Chapter

The HRM Bedford Sackville Chapter of Autism Nova Scotia supports the growing number of families and individuals touched by autism in the central region. This group was founded 12 years ago by 2 moms, both whom were looking for social opportunities for their children and others on the autism spectrum.

You are invited the first Tuesday of ever month to our support meeting. Please join us for an evening of discussion and support in a relaxed atmosphere, stress-free and withourt judgement.this chapter meets for a support group. It is open to parents, family members and caregivers of persons living with autism. We meet to share & learn from one another.

We also hold FREE social events for families to come to and have fun. We currently hold dances, swims, a huge summer picnic and an awesome Christmas bounce party.  These events are essential for families.  They provide a place for families to connect with each other and a place where kids with ASD can interact with other children just like them.

We provide all families with a warm welcome – that is what we are here for. 

Support meetings take place from 7pm – 9pm  The first Tuesday of every month.
We have loved our meetings at the Library, but due to scheduling we have had to find a new home.
We are pleased to be able to have our meetings at the Bedford Office of Autism NS.
Starting September, 2018 Our new permanent location is - 1550 Bedford Highway, Suite 302 ( SunTower), Bedford
