Canada Ostomy Day 2017
Ostomy Canada Society is pleased to announce the 5th annual Canada
Ostomy Day on October 7, 2017.
The purpose of the Canada Ostomy Day is to raise awareness of the estimated 90,000 people
living in Canada with an ostomy.
Many chapters across Canada will join in the Stoma Stroll Awareness Walk, see our website
www.stomastroll.ca for more information. We invite cities across Canada to proclaim
October 7, 2017 as Canada Ostomy Day.
Purpose of the Walk
Ostomy Canada Society Inc. is a nationally registered Canadian charity
(Charitable Reg. No: 119277093RR0001). The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness and
funds in support of our mission. We do not receive government funding and rely on your efforts
and support from our donors to fulfill our mission. The walk will also serve to create a sense of
community and support for people living with an ostomy and their families in your region. In this respect, the walk
is of immeasurable value.
