Calgary Chapter Meeting

Calgary Chapter Meeting
The Calgary Chapter breaks for the summer months July and August. 

Our chapter meetings are usually held the last Thursday of every month. These illnesses are much more manageable when the community comes together, shares, and learns from one another. The Calgary Chapter meetings are a time for the IBD community to come together to support each other. Our focus is to create awareness of these diseases locally, improve the lives of those living with Crohn's and colitis, to grow our volunteer base and to raise funds to invest in research, patient programs, advocacy and awareness.

Contact Brenna Scott at bscott@crohnsandcolitis.ca or 403-700-1729.
