Crohn’s and Colitis Canada has updated many of its patient education brochures and created new brochures to address a range of topics relevant to people living Crohn’s and colitis. In addition to the core brochures that help patients and their families understand the dietary, medication, surgical and cancer implications of these diseases, we also have brochures to help patients navigate issues such as intimacy, fertility and ostomy care.

Brochures are in pdf (Adobe Acrobat) format. To download a free copy of Acrobat Reader, please click here.

Brochures are available in print from your local Chapter or Regional Office.
