2022 Annual Report: Shaping Our Future

This past year has been an exciting journey for us at Crohn’s and Colitis Canada. Together with our
community, we embarked on a new Impact Strategy to guide us in better achieving and reporting on our Promise – we aspire to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by these diseases.

Through a very comprehensive and highly engaged discovery process, we gathered feedback from our community that inspired us to rethink how we achieve our mission. We determined that we needed to put our mission impact at the centre of our strategy, with clear measures of our progress.

And we needed to be bolder to reach and inspire more people to this important cause.

The theme of our 2022 Annual Report is "Shaping Our Future" – and we invite you to explore how we're approaching this through our programs and new and ongoing research.
