Crohn’s and Colitis Canada/Crohn et Colite Canada was founded in 1974 by a group of parents whose children were diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). They were concerned about the lack of funding for IBD research and they were interested in learning more about Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC).
From that small but dedicated group, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada/Crohn et Colite Canada has grown to become a world leader in IBD research funding. Through the support of our generous sponsors and donors, we fund research projects that probe the mysteries of IBD. We know that life-altering treatments have been developed as a result of these discoveries, and we also know that one day, a cure will be found.
