Chapters, Satellites and Peer Support Groups of Ostomy Canada Society

We have chapters, satellites, and peer support groups across Canada, that hold meetings and events to provide an opportunity for ostomates and their families, partners, caregivers and friends to meet, provide support and understanding and share information.

  • Advertise with us! Click here for details.

Ostomy Canada Society chapters, satellites, and peer support groups 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 and understanding and share information. Chapters often invite a health care professional, such as an Enterostomal Therapist Nurse, a physician, pharmacist, or dietician to speak at the chapter 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 meeting in your local area, and to join either the local chapter or become a national supporter of Ostomy Canada Society. Information about the chapters follows. For more information about how to become part of Ostomy Canada Society, please see the membership section.

For an online map of regions, chapters, satellites, or peer support groups, see below.  You can type your postal code in the bottom right hand search box to locate your city or town and then zoom in or out to find your nearest chapter, satellite or peer support group.
