50 years ago little was known about celiac disease and the gluten free diet.

Fast forward to today and both the disease and diet are firmly on the worldwide map. Thanks to our founders and the work of the charity ever since, almost 40,000 diagnosed people in Canada now live a better way of life thanks to improved recognition and diagnosis of the disease and ongoing improvements to the gluten-free diet.

We have much to celebrate in terms of our achievements and the amazing work of our volunteering community over the past 50 years.

We’ll be featuring stories and snippets of the past 50 years in 2023 editions of Canadian Celiac Magazine and on our website as well as social media. We’re also gearing up to get more support for our research activities so we’ll keep you informed on how you can help us do that.
