Introducing Crohn’s and Colitis Connect

The Crohn

There is a new online peer community dedicated to supporting those living with or caring for someone with Crohn’s or colitis – Crohn's and Colitis Connect.

There, you can

  • exchange advice and strategies for managing Crohn's or colitis
  • attend events with others affected by Crohn’s or colitis as well as experts from across Canada 
  • read and share stories 
  • tailor your newsfeed to stay updated on topics and discussions that resonate with you
  • ask questions and receive guidance from experienced individuals who've been there
  • chat with the Crohn’s and Colitis Canada team

At this time, Crohn’s and Colitis Connect is hosted by Mighty Networks which is currently not multilingual. We have ensured wherever possible that information is available in French and English.
