Our Leadership

Meet Our Leadership Team

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

Our leadership team and volunteer Board of Directors work hand-in-hand in setting out a strategy in our aspiration to find the cures and improving the lives of everyone affected by Crohn’s and colitis.

We have invested over $145 million in inflammatory bowel research since our founding in 1974, making Canada a research powerhouse. Our patient programs, advocacy and awareness are helping improve the lives of the 322,000 Canadians living with these invisible, chronic diseases.

Join our team as a volunteer or employee.
