It's CCA's 36th birthday and we are asking for one of the biggest birthday gifts in years!
Yes we've moved the needle together over these past 30+ years.
We've helped improve food labelling and increase access to safe foods.
There are more gluten-free options at our local grocery stores.
We've invested in Canadian research that is improving people's quality of life.
We've been the voice of science-based information, busting myths along the way.
We've stood up for the community when our voice needed to be heard.
But there is more work to be done.
Up to 20% of Canadians are still yet to be diagnosed.
You have a disease that many people still don't understand.
Diagnosis still takes too long. People call every day frightened and confused asking for our help.
More restaurants and long-term care facilities need to understand how to truly serve gluten-free food.
Ontario still doesn't cover the blood screening test.
Every day CCA, its chapters and volunteers are working hard for you to reach the 85,000 physicians, the 300,000+ Canadians yet to be diagnosed, the 1 million food service industry workers and the hundreds of politicians and inform the 34 million Canadians.
Together, with your financial support, you can help make the lives of people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity better. You can help improve education, increase public awareness and advance research to find a cure.
