About us

auteur

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2004 (dermatitis herpetiformis). I am well aware of the problems and complications brought on by this disease in everyday life, in particular in the search for and selection of gluten-free products.

 

Our Mission

We are a non-profit organization supported by volunteers who have decided to join their efforts to help and serve people with celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis. Our goal is to offer totally free services and make a significant difference to every Canadian that is celiac or has a dermatitis herpetiformis

 

Your team of volunteers!!

A new volunteer (Web designer) has joined your team in January 2012. You can now count on:

1. A translator
2. A researcher
3. An IT developer
4. An IT back-end specialist
5. A Web designer
6. A site administrator responsible for content, who also serves as researcher

  

Our Services

• A unique income tax tool to help you process your medical claims. This tool allows you to simply enter you purchases
and the calculation will be done automatically.
It has been built to integrate the requirements for each Canadian province and territory.
• A list of available gluten-free products in Canada. This should reduce your search for gluten-free products. This list can
also be used by restaurants, suppliers and anyone who knows a person affected by celiac or dermatitis herpetiformis.
• A list of useful links on topics such as medication, Health Canada-licensed natural supplements, travelling and much
more.

 

Availability of Services

The services we’re able to provide are dependent on the availability, knowledge and expertise of our volunteers.
As such, some of our services may change from time to time.

We have decided to contribute to the celiac community with the following objectives in mind:

• Offer you a reference guide to the widest possible choice of gluten-free products available in Canada.
• Share our knowledge garnered from extensive volunteer research, documentation, and correspondence with
manufacturers.
• Save you time in your search for equivalent non-gluten-free products.
• Simplify the process of claiming the medical expenses in your income tax returns.

We have made every effort to ensure that our list of products is as complete and reliable as possible.
We intend to continue to do so, within the limits of our availability.

 

We remind you to always read the product labelling carefully. The new Labelling Regulations coming in 2012 should help us with this.

 

We think this web site can make a REAL improvement in your life.
We truly hope that you will take advantage of it, as we do.
