This enactment requires the Minister of Health to convene a conference of all provincial and territorial ministers of health for the purpose of working together to develop a national strategy for the treatment of autism. It also requires the Minister to table a report in both Houses of Parliament specifying a plan of action to implement this strategy.
The enactment also amends the Canada Health Act to ensure that the cost of Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) and Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) for autistic persons is covered by the health care insurance plan of every province or territory.
