Stories from the Crohn's and Colitis Community

Quick Fact

  • Canada has among the highest incidence rates of Crohn's and colitis in the world.
  • 1 in 140 Canadians lives with Crohn’s or colitis.
  • Families new to Canada are developing these diseases for the first time.
  • Incidence of Crohn’s in Canadian kids under 10 has doubled since 1995.
  • People are most commonly diagnosed before age 30.

Although 1 in 140 Canadians lives with inflammatory bowel disease, too few people know or understand this chronic, invisible illness. Help us raise awareness.
