About Food Allergy Canada – Addressing A Dangerous Health Issue

Since 2001, the non-profit Food Allergy Canada has worked to make things safer for people who live with potentially life-threatening food allergies as well as those who care for them. On their website, Food Allergy Canada shares the following key facts about why allergies pose such a threat:

  • “Food allergy is a growing public health issue in Canada.
  • There is no cure; avoidance of allergenic food(s) is the only way to prevent an allergic reaction.
  • Approximately 2.5 million Canadians self-report having at least one food allergy.*
  • About 300,000 Canadian children under 18 years have food allergies.
  • One in two Canadians know someone with a serious food allergy.
  • More than 40% of Canadians read food labels looking for allergen information.”1

Food Allergy Canada – How They Help

As a registered Canadian charity, Food Allergy Canada staff, board members and advisors work to improve lives. Their mission is “educate, support, and advocate for the needs of individuals and families living with food allergy and the risk of anaphylaxis, as well as to support and participate in research related to food allergy and anaphylaxis.”2

Every day, the non-profit accomplishes their mission by providing much-needed support, education, research funding, advocacy services as well as free allergy information email updates about food labels, product recalls, research, school policy trends, events and more.

Ultimately, Food Allergy Canada works “to empower people by providing credible, factual, user-friendly information and tools that support those at risk and the communities in which they live, work, learn and eat.”3
