Overview | Location

The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) is a national not-for-profit voluntary medical research Foundation. Its mission is to find the cure for inflammatory bowel disease. To achieve its mission, the Foundation is committed to raising increasing funds for medical research. The CCFC is one of the world’s leaders in non-governmental, per capita funding of IBD research. To date, the Foundation has invested more than $65 million in major medical research projects.

Education is also a part of our mandate. The Foundation provides information on IBD to patients, their families, health professionals and the general public through education brochures, its national member publication The Journal and local Education events. The CCFC was started in 1974 by a group of concerned parents who saw the need to raise funds for research into inflammatory bowel disease and to educate patients and their families about these diseases.

In 1992, the Foundation's name changed to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada from the Canadian Foundation for Ileitis and Colitis in order to more accurately reflect the two most prevalent intestinal disorders. The CCFC has over 65,000 supporters and includes members in some 80 local volunteer groups across Canada. The key to the CCFC's success is the interest and work of thousands of volunteers across the country. Volunteers participate in numerous fundraising initiatives throughout the year including; national programs such as M & M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day, the Fall Fundraiser and the Heel 'n' Wheel-a-Thon (held in the Spring).
