ABOUT THE CROHN’S AND COLITIS FOUNDATION OF CANADA


The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) is a volunteer-based registered charity dedicated to finding cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively referred to as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). To achieve our mission, the Foundation is committed to raising funds for medical research. Medical research is the best hope for finding a cure for, and improving the lives of, persons affected with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.


The CCFC invests in IBD research, education and awareness and is Canada’s top funder of cure-directed research. As of July 2012, the CCFC has invested more than $76 million in IBD research and is the world leader in non-governmental funding per capita of such research.The CCFC has more than 65,000 supporters, including volunteers in approximately 80 local groups across Canada.


Due to the research investments made by the CCFC and others, significant progress has been made in understanding the fundamental biology of the intestine and the genetic and environmental contributors to inflammatory bowel disease. Much work, however, remains in order to find cures and to continue to improve the quality of life for all those living with IBD.


In 2011, the Board of Directors of the CCFC committed to advancing three specific public policy priorities: increase government funding for IBD research and awareness; ensure timely and equitable access for IBD medications and treatments; and improve public bathroom access for those living with IBD. The CCFC has taken a leadership role in advancing these priorities, and is committed to working with key stakeholders to address the recommendations highlighted in this report.
