World IBD Day

Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of Canada

“Facts and Statistics:

Canadians have more reasons to be concerned about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis than anyone else in the world.

  • 1 in every 150 Canadians is living with Crohn’s or colitis – a rate that ranks in the highest worldwide
  • Families new to Canada are developing Crohn’s and colitis for the first time – often within the first generation
  • Most alarming, the number of new cases of Crohn’s disease in Canadian children has almost doubled since 1995

Read the Impact of IBD Report for more information about the significant impact of inflammatory bowel disease on individuals, the healthcare system and society in Canada.

Watch Videos of Canadians living with Crohn’s and colitis as they share their stories of how IBD has impacted their lives.  Listen to their stories of courage.”  From Crohn’s and Colitis Canada – link above
