Why it matters

Changing public policy is one of the most effective tools for improving life for those living with celiac disease and gluten-related disorders. That’s why Celiac Canada works with government to bring about public policy change that will help improve the lives of people living gluten-free and their caregivers. Our advocacy work is making a difference.
