Winnipeg & Area Chapter Meetings

Virtual meeting on a computer with a cup of coffee
Please note that we are currently breaking from Chapter meetings for the months of July and August. We will be announcing our September meeting date sometime in August, so check back then!

The Winnipeg Chapter meetings are a friendly place for people living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis or caregivers, family and friends to meet others and learn about Inflammatory Bowel Disease. The Chapter also engages our community by promoting local patient program delivery, growing the local volunteer base, raising funds and supporting awareness and involvement through activities like hosting Gutsy Walks and promoting disease education and awareness and information on how Crohn’s and Colitis Canada can help. 

If you would like more information please contact Darrah Horobetz, Development Coordinator at or 204-688-9076.
