Giant Steps is a therapy centre that builds the skills and abilities of children with autism through specialized therapies, life skills programs and academic support


Our dedicated, energetic families and staff are busy year-round planning events that play a major role in the ongoing funding of our children’s therapy programs.
We welcome your help in ensuring their success. Together we’ll make a difference for kids with autism!

Giant Steps is privileged to be one of the 40+ local charities that benefit from gaming at Bingo World Richmond Hill.

Our parents support this charitable initiative by volunteering at Bingo sessions, and we are fortunate each year to receive significant funds for our kids’ Occupational Therapy program.

This hands-on therapy program impacts the lives of the children with autism we support by building their skills and abilities in every area of development.

You can make a difference for our kids and other charities by coming out and playing!

The Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2020 went virtual!

From October 1 to November 21, 2020
Participants walked or ran, and raised funds for kids with autism

And while this year was challenging, we’re excited to announce

Giant Steps’ team won FIRST PRIZE from Scotiabank for Most Fundraising Participants at the Scotiabank Charity Challenge this year!

That’s #1 amongst 163 charities in the GTA and another $6,000, bringing our total to $68,000!

HUGE THANKS to Scotiabank, Canada Running Series and every one of our 72 walkers, runners and donors.

Because of you, the kids with autism we serve are the real winners!

Every dollar raised helped fund our hands-on speech, occupational and behaviour therapy programs this past year. 

We couldn’t have done it without YOU!

GIANT STEPS HAS NOW RAISED OVER $1.4 MILLION DOLLARS since we began participating in this event in 2004.

We are in great company with Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, SickKids Foundation and Fountain of Love & Life, all of us members of STWM’s Million Dollar Club!

Our heartfelt thanks to Scotiabank and Canada Running Series for enabling charities like ours to participate in a world-class event and fulfill our mission. Scotiabank generously pays for the online transaction fees, enabling 100% of donations to come directly to Giant Steps.
