New Brunswick Community Meeting

People at a chapter meeting

Join us in person, or from anywhere in New Brunswick!

Community plays such an important part in the Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis journey, for those with the diagnosis and those who support them.

Become a part of our IBD community!

The New Brunswick Community meetings are a great place to get support and connect with others in the IBD community. Join us for casual conversation, check in and a chance to ask questions about Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. If you'd like, stick around to hear about the events and activities taking place in New Brunswick.

Please note: The casual session is not a source of medical advice - it is a forum where attendees can share their experiences and offer words of encouragement and support.

To attend, please RSVP to Dawna MacIvor, Community Engagement Coordinator - Atlantic Canada:

In-person meetings will take place at the YMCA - 30 War Veterans Ave. – in the board room.

If you're unable to attend in person, a Zoom link can be provided to you. Please e-mail Dawna MacIvor, Development and Community Engagement Coordinator for the Atlantic Region -

Atlantic Canada has the highest rates of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in Canada, and we’re still not sure why. Many people on the east coast who live with IBD every day really value the sense of community and the local support they receive from others.

We look forward to meeting you!
