You will be fine. Some of the best gluten free dishes are from italy. Just think, Risotto, Polenta, etc.
Italy has teh highest screening ratio per capita in the world. They lead the way when it comes to gluten intolerance.
So tomorrow is the big annual conference for the Calgary chapter of the Canadian celiacs Association.
The exciting part about it is the attached trade show with some intersting vendors.
There are 400 registered attendees, pretty amazing if you ask me.
On the way to Banff/Jasper, if you drive and got time, stop in Cochrane. About 35 minutes west of Calgary.
There you can find a small place where they offer 100% gluten free baked goods like breads, cakes and pastries.
G.F. PATISSERIE, 122 - 3rd Avenue West
Open Wednesday to Saturday. Sunday's they sell at the Bearspaw Farmers Market.

CANADA, EH? Come on up, lots of space and good quality of life.
I am from Austria and lived in quite a few place around the planet in my life. US included (6 years in Vegas). My wife is Canadian, hence my current home base. Every country has pros and cons, but if you don't try, you will never find out. I'd say you got a good 5 years before you need to think about school for your boy, so just do it.
NO GUTS, NO GLORY. Set your priorities first, then decide on a country. I joined Club Med @ 18 and they gave me the bug. Every 6 month a different place, Asia, Europe, Middle East, Africa, etc. Later in the Hospitality industry and a few cruise ships further made me go from spot to spot.
I personally loved living in the US, warts and all included. Your healthcare system is a bit screwey, but where there is a will there is a way. No other country in this world (Canada being the exception) will give you the opportunity "to make it" like the USA. But sometimes it takes a "leave of absence" for a few years to see how good your life is back home...

Those are the two words to translate gluten free and celiacs disease I think.
For research purposes (my wife is opening a gluten-free bakery & pastry shop), I surfed around the net in Germany, to see how they do it.
There are some options available and I am sure many more I did not find.
Schaer, widely available in drug marts, like the DM chain. Soso stuff, we ate some on our last trip to Austria.
Hammermuehle, a corn producer, they have a shop near Frankfurt I think.
But the best I could find while surfing was an actual Baeckermeister, Thomas Kaufman, who dedicated his craft to gluten free bread. We exchanged some emails since and he is really into his bakery, which when it comes to gluten-free is so important. Passion for quality is it. He ships via his website. Here is his website. Under "links" you can find a whole list of celiac related websites in Germany.
Just so you know, Italy is the the most advanced country when it comes to Celiacs screening. Every child before school age gets tested. Italy is not far from Germany at all and you can find tons and tons of gluten-free products there as well.
