Welcome to the Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association. We're here to support residents of Eastern and Northern Ontario in 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, informational newsletters, discounts at area businesses, and so much more. We would greatly appreciate your membership or donations!
From guest speakers to vendor fairs to potlucks and information sessions for newly diagnosed, the Ottawa Chapter hosts a number of informative events. Click the link to see what's coming up!

Our Liaison Chair is the first point of contact with the Chapter for those needing help to navigate celiac disease, the gluten-free diet, or if they are seeking more about information about 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 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
