Our Leadership

Meet Our Leadership Team

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada fulfills our promise because of our dedicated team, comprised of both volunteers and staff, in communities from coast-to-coast.

Our volunteer Board of Directors and Senior Staff Management Team work hand-in-hand to set strategic direction to guide the contributions of thousands of volunteers and staff – and to respond to the needs identified by our stakeholders, especially people with Crohn's and colitis and their families.

We have invested over $122 million in inflammatory bowel research since our founding in 1974, making Canada a research powerhouse on the world stage. Our patient programs, advocacy and awareness are helping improve the lives of almost 270,000 Canadians living with these invisible, chronic diseases.

Consider joining our team, as volunteer or employee, and help make Crohn’s and colitis stop. For life.
