Gastrointestinal Society

Gastrointestinal Society

With quality and integrity, the Gastrointestinal Society continues to be the leading provider of evidence-based, free patient information in the GI health field.

Although gastrointestinal diseases and disorders are rarely a subject of public discussion, they are highly prevalent among Canadians. There are as many as 6 million Canadians with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), more than 9 million with functional dyspepsia, and a further 233,000 suffering from chronic inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis).

Despite the gastrointestinal field being critically under-funded, the Gastrointestinal Society works every day to secure a better future for Canadians living with GI conditions.
