Im am from Vancouver Island. There are a few gluten free bakeries and health food stores around that provide gluten-free foods, but I have yet to find a local support group.



I agree with you,I too am from Vancouver Island. Emailed the chapter in Nanaimo and no response.

I am from Victoria and find the Vic chapter very helpful. Also you can access the Celiac Assoc newsletter online,which gives great info and also tells what bakeries, restaurants in Nanaimo are available. I was diagnosed June 2010 and am still struggling with the cursed ailment and not really feeling better, in fact some days I think that I feel worse than before I was diagnosed.
Hope you can contact the Nanaimo chapter, they are very active.
Good luck

We are from the little town of Elmvale :) North of Barrie, Ont. My son was diagnosed earlier this year and the only reason he was tested was because I insisted knowing my older brother has DH/celiac for about 10 years. I wouldn't have had a clue otherwise thinking he just had echema...little did I know all the OTHER symptoms that were from celiac. Thanks to this group I have learned A LOT! lol

Welcome fellow Canadians! :)

Hi, I'm Sara. I'm in Nanaimo. I'm not formally diagnosed but have been gluten free for 4 weeks now and am feeling great. The couple little slip ups and the horrible results have convinced me not to make myself ill for official testing.

Sara

Busy mom to 3 great kids (4, 8 and 18)

Gluten free since April 6, 2011 ~ Also sensitive to coconut, coffee and food dyes

Joint pain, mouth sores, back and neck pain, migraines, stomach pain, chronic fatigue, ADD and depression are all gone.
Wishing I had been diagnosed before celiac robbed me of the cartilage in my toes and the 3 babies we lost to miscarriages.

My brother took me to the whole foods in Hamilton and I was in heaven.lol Some of the items I buy locally were a couple bucks cheaper (and when it is my son's school snacks that helps a lot) they had a sale and I stocked up! lol wish we had one here.

Hello there!

I live in Ottawa, Ontario. Moved here from Holland 6 years ago.

I'm new to the forum, my oldest DS just got diagnosed and the rest of us are now getting tested.

I'm so grateful for all the resources out there! And also the amount of gluten-free food available. We took my DS off wheat for about 1.5 years a couple of years ago and even in that short amount of time the gluten-free options have improved! I usually shop at Food Basics and they now have a gluten-free line of the Irresistible brand, their gluten-free breadcrumbs are a whole lot cheaper than other brands I've seen :D

Hi collgwg,
Sorry to hear about your ordeal with the sausages. I do have some good news. Sweet Williams sausages made right here in Nova Scotia are all gluten-free. They sell them at some of the farmers markets.

Such fun! So many of us from all the provinces and territories. I am north of Toronto, off Lake Simcoe. Originally from Belleville Ontario.

I took my diagnosis as the dream come true that it was to me. Finally a reason, a definable, medical reason, that others could understand. No more pain, no more embarrassment, no more bloating up and looking pregnant randomly, rashes from my job...I was a Baker :-)No more 2-3 times a year hospital visits, with an exhausted husband asleep by my bedside while I cried silently in frustration that I was back here AGAIN.

I already knew how to bake and cook, though for a week or two I felt a bit overwhelmed and just ate salad and chicken lol. Then my appetite and creativity kicked in. I have always been the daughter that cooked for my family since I was 9, it was a passion! SO now, when we visit my mother, or sister or M-in law, I still make everything, but its all gluten free now. X-mas dinner was a mescalin greens salad with lobster in a lemon and butter vinagrette, followed by orange roasted root vegetables, mashed potatoes and Leg of Lamb. Pavlova with fresh whipped cream and berries for dessert. Anyone who says they don't know what to eat...give it time, you will find your way. It just takes time.

Without my husbands support, before and after diagnosis..well I don't even want to think about that.

To anyone trying to find certain items at a local store but coming up short, I would say, check out a recipe and have a go at it yourself. Making your own food is very satisfying and somethings that you may have thoughts were complicated are not. Things like beef jerky, or yogurt/sour cream, or even your own potato chips. All super simple things. If you need any recipes, PM myself, or check out the recipes section.

I am super excited to see so many Canadians on this forum, lets keep this thread rolling!!
