Among the services provided to Ostomy Canada Society chapters and their members are Visitor Training, which certifies and trains people living with an ostomy to visit and reach out to others who have just undergone ostomy surgery. As well, all Chapter members receive Ostomy Canada magazine twice yearly, with medical information and personal interest articles. Ostomy Canada Society sponsors the Ostomy Canada Youth Camp, enabling youth between 9 and 18 to spend a week with their peers, learning they are not alone.
A charitable donation receipt will be provided for all donations in excess of $10.00. Unless otherwise directed, your donation will be part of Ostomy Canada Society general funding.
This June, help promote our mission by donating at least $3 through Canada Helps.
