Ontario makes it stop. For life.

The Ontario Region takes in a large collection of towns and cities that are home to a diverse and ever-growing population. Ontario is the home of a strong community of volunteers, donors and sponsors, as well as an innovative team of researchers and healthcare professionals. These people are the heart and soul of our organization, and there are so many exciting ways to get involved! Every volunteer, donor, researcher and sponsor helps us to improve the lives of those affected by Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and brings us closer to finding cures.

We welcome newcomers – contact us today and, together, we’ll make it stop. For life.
