Winnipeg Chapter Meeting

The Winnipeg Chapter Meetings are a friendly place for people living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis or caregivers, family and friends to meet others and get the support they need. The Chapter also engages our  community by promoting local patient program delivery, growing the local volunteer base, raising funds and supporting awareness and involvement through activities like hosting Gutsy Walks and promoting disease education and awareness and information on how Crohn’s and Colitis Canada can help. 

Please join us for a meet and greet at 6:30 followed by the Chapter Meeting at 7:00pm.  The meetings are open to anyone and everyone with an interest in Crohn's and colitis and we would be happy to have you join us.  

Registration is not necessary, if you would like more information please contact Kyle Brown, Chapter President at kylesbrown@hotmail.com or Kerri Hiebert, Development Coordinator, Manitoba at khiebert@crohnsandcolitis.ca
