You’re not alone on your journey.

We're here for you. Every step of the way.


Every hour someone in Canada is diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.

These are painful, lifelong diseases that attack the gastrointestinal system—causing physical and mental stress to those who live with them. For those who get diagnosed with Crohn’s or colitis, or any other form of inflammatory bowel disease, the journey from first experiencing the symptoms to finding support and stability can be a challenge.

But that’s why Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is here.

From diagnosis to disease maintenance, we have supports for you at every step. Whether it’s peer support, research-backed education or making connections with our community at Gutsy Walk and other events, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is here for you.

You’re not alone on your journey. We’re here for you. Every step of the way.
