Crohn's and Colitis Canada

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada (CCC) 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 and ulcerative colitis.

From that small but dedicated group, CCC has grown to become a world leader in IBD research funding. Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is the country’s largest non-governmental funder of Crohn’s and colitis research and are also the single largest patient organization in Canada focused on Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, with over 40 volunteer chapters across the country.

Through the support of our generous sponsors and donors, CCC funds 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.
