Hi... I'm just wondering if I'm the only Canadian on here. I've just recently been diagnosed and found this forum and liked what I saw but it seems to be only americans which might be a little difficult for getting specific help, and food, and shopping ideas. I love the help I've already gotten from some of you though, you guys are very helpful!

So just looking for Canadians for more help with shopping, stores, support groups etc...

Hi Lisa,

You are definitely not the only Canadian here. We have it covered from West coast to the East coast and in between. Where are you ?

There is lots of good info here, although I must admit I am jealous of the Americans for all the food choices they can get.

I live in North Carolina, USA. But I know how sassy you Canadians can be. Especially when it gets dark early and mints are the only source of entertainment....har,har,har. :ph34r:

Hi :lol: I'm also from Canada. PEI to be more exact. Welcome to the family. This sight is excellent and I would not survive without it. Just remember that this board is predominantly USA, and sometimes the information given will not apply to us here in Canada. I found out the hard way :blink:

So stay on board and we look forward to chatting.

I would love to go, but if I get a job within the next month or so, I probably won't be able to attend unless I get a job in southern Ontario.

Welcome EMS! Another Cdn here. I'm just outside Toronto. If you haven't done so yet, check out Kawartha Bakery - it's close to Peterborough and worth the short drive! There's a bakery that makes fresh bread, cinnamon buns, meat pies, etc. (I buy them at a health food store in Whitby shipped from Lakefied.) ALSO - they have a small restaurant attached to the bakery with many gluten-free options. My son loved the grilled cheese and fries. I don't even remember which dessert he settled on. Enjoy!

I'm from Canada too, Edmonton, and also new to all this. I'm in the process of being diagnosed, just had my biospies on thursday. I had been off of gluten for 4 years prior to the 6 weeks leading up to the test so I've got the hang of eating gluten free but I'm sure I'll have loads of other questions.
