GUTS Volunteer Conference

Volunteers are at the heart of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada. Without the time and talent of our volunteers from across Canada, we wouldn’t be able to offer the support, stage the events, or raise the funds for research that we do. You’re making an impact on Canada’s Crohn’s and colitis community.

National GUTS is our chance to thank you in person for your dedication to the cause, and your chance to connect with other volunteers, feel inspired to carry on your work, and learn new ways to do it. We also want to hear your thoughts on volunteering and the work Crohn’s and Colitis Canada does to support everyone impacted by inflammatory bowel disease. Please join us for National Guts.
