Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is pleased to announce that it has been designated as a Certified Autism Center by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). After completing intensive autism sensitivity and awareness training, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is the first attraction in Canada to receive this important designation.

Becoming a Certified Autism Center demonstrates an organization’s commitment to ensuring guests with autism and sensory sensitivities have the best possible experience. As part of the certification process, Ripley’s Aquarium staff underwent extensive training as well as an onsite review which involved the integration of IBCCES Sensory Guides at each exhibit to give visitors more information on sensory impacts here.

Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada will host several sensory-friendly days on the first Sunday of the month for the remainder of the year, which will offer increased lighting, a music-free environment and a quiet room for guests who require a break.
