Welcome to the Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association. We're here to support new and existing members adapting to a gluten-free lifestyle.
Membership in the chapter provides access to informative medical speakers, research toward treatment for celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity, work with restaurants to provide safe, gluten-free dining options, newsletters and so much more.
From nutritional meetings to potlucks and information sessions for newly diagnosed, the Ottawa Chapter hosts a number of informative events.
Celiac Disease is a medical condition in which the absorptive surface of the small intestine is damaged by a number of proteins found in grains, and referred to collectively as 'gluten'.

The Liaison Committee is the first point of contact with the Chapter for those who wish information about celiac disease, the gluten-free diet, or the Canadian Celiac Association. We provide information via telephone or mailed pamphlets, or in the case of organizations such as restaurants, retirement homes, and interest groups in general, by delivering appropriate lectures and presentations. We may be reached via the voice mailbox (613) 786-1335 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
