Research Article-Hindawi Publishing Corporation-An Analysis of Canadian Institute for Health Research Funding for Research on Autism Spectrum Disorder-Most problematic is our reliance on a single source of research funding, specifically CIHR. However, in Canada the only major funders of ASD research outside of CIHR are a collection of autism-specific foundations, such as Autism Speaks Canada, the Spectrum Intervention Group,LAmitient, the Canadian National Autism Foundation, and some international foundations with interest in Canada, such as the Geneva Centre for Autism. In 2012, these groups provided a combined total of just over $500,000 in research funding [6], which is significantly smaller than that provided by CIHR.

December 2009-Parents of autistic children on guard against 'running'-Tina Fougere, the founder of the Canadian National Autism Foundation, said her 17-year-old autistic son doesn't take off as often as he did when he was younger, but is still considered a flight risk.There were a few times when he was in elementary school in Hamilton, Ont., where he escaped from the school grounds and ran onto the road. After years of training him, he now knows to stop when he's asked and even responds to others' voices, she said. In her ideal world, runners would be outfitted with a beeper, much like an ankle bracelet used to track people under house arrest. But she notes that such devices could do more harm than good."You're trying to help that child fit into society the best way we can, and yet you're drawing attention to them," she said.
