Celebrating 50 Years
Join us in celebrating 50 years of Celiac Canada!
Moments of Change
There have been key moments over the past 50 years. Here are some of the highlights.
“This 50th offers the opportunity to celebrate 50 years of success and to re-dedicate ourselves to the goal of diagnosing and empowering people across Canada living with celiac disease and gluten-related disorders.”
– Melissa Secord
National Executive Director
Celiac Canada’s reach is across Canada. We invite our entire community – patients, healthcare providers, food manufacturers, medical researchers, friends, donors and partners – to take their place, share their memories, get involved and reconnect.
There are many events and initiatives planned for our 50th year!
