An Act to amend the Canada Health Act (Autism Spectrum Disorder) Edit
This is C-459 which did not pass in the previous session. I've posted it here to update and improve.
The purpose of this enactment is 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.
1st Session, 38th Parliament, 53-54 Elizabeth II, 2004-2005 HOUSE OF COMMONS OF CANADA Her Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate and House of Commons of Canada, enacts as follows:
1. Section 2 of the Canada Health Act is renumbered as subsection 2(1) and is amended by adding the following: Autism Spectrum Disorder
(2) For the purposes of this Act, services that are medically necessary or required under this Act include Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) and Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) for persons suffering from Autism Spectrum Disorder.
