Topic: Kitchener/Waterloo Chapter Meeting
Time: July 12th, 2023 6:30PM 
Location: Victoria Park (meet at washroom at 40 Jubilee Drive Lot)

Crohn's and Colitis Canada chapter meetings are a time for the IBD community to unite, learn, and share. Our focus is to create awareness of these diseases locally, improve the lives of those living with Crohn's and colitis, grow our volunteer base, and raise funds to invest in research, patient programs, advocacy, and awareness.

Whether you are living with IBD or are a parent or caregiver of a loved one who does, these chapter meetings are an excellent way to meet new faces and discuss topics relevant to living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

If you want more information on the Kitchener/Waterloo chapter, please get in touch with Shie Gorman at
