Over 20 million Canadians suffer from digestive disorders. 

We believe this is unnecessary and unacceptable.

The Canadian Digestive Health Foundation provides expert advice and compassionate support to the millions of Canadians who suffer from digestive disorders. 

We are here to help you recognize symptoms that could be related to digestive disorders, understand specific digestive diseases, connect with others who have similar experiences, and find effective ways to manage your digestive health. 

We are the Foundation of the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology. Because we are directly connected to Canada's leading digestive health experts, physicians, scientists and other health care professionals, you can trust us to provide you with practical, science-based information that is up to date and unbiased.
