Ostomy Canada Society Chapters, Peer Support Groups and Satellites have been organized, and are meant to provide an opportunity for persons who have had or may have ostomy surgery and their families, partners, caregivers and friends to meet, provide support, enhance understanding and share information. Chapters often invite a health care professional, such as an NSWOC (Nurse Specializing in Wound and Ostomy Care), a physician, pharmacist, or dietician to speak at the Chapter or PSG meeting. There may also be a presentation from a representative of one of the manufacturers or suppliers of ostomy products. You are encouraged to attend a Chapter or PSG meeting in your local area and to join either the local Chapter, PSG or become an Ostomy supporter of Ostomy Canada Society.
The contact information we collected for each Chapter/Support Group was from multiple sources – websites, national office and postal information. It is displayed in a common format and naming which cannot take a PO Box address. If there are corrections – please send firstname.lastname@example.org
