Organizations around the city will be holding events today for World Autism Awareness Day.

Golden Avenue Public School will take a school photo with everyone dressed in blue, the official colour for the day. Students will also be walking through the community today.

Both the school and city hall will have a flag raising ceremony this morning.

This is the 7th annual event where people across the world will “Light It Up Blue,” an initiative started by Autism Speaks, one of the world’s leading autism science advocacy organizations.
