Our Leadership

Meet Our Leadership Team

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada fulfills our promise because of our dedicated team, comprised of both volunteers and staff, in communities from coast-to-coast.

Our volunteer Board of Directors and Senior Staff Management Team work hand-in-hand to set strategic direction to guide the contributions of thousands of volunteers and staff – and to respond to the needs identified by our stakeholders, especially people with Crohn's and colitis and their families.

We have invested $115 million in inflammatory bowel research since our founding in 1974, making Canada a research powerhouse on the world stage. Our patient programs, advocacy and awareness are helping improve the lives of almost 250,000 Canadians living with these invisible, chronic diseases.
