  1. As a fellow Canadian who is not only celiac but also trying to get into the forces do you know where I can find this information? I was told by a medical technician at the Edmonton recruiting centre that after speaking with someone from Ottawa having celiac is something that can prevent me from joining, yet you say there are no limitations at all for you!? I continued with my application anyway (I admit, part of why I am joining is so I can get my education at the college and be debt free...I just CAN'T afford reg. uni - and we don't even pay half as much as the states for tuition :-S but I also LOVE being in the military enviroment and grew up in CFB Cold Lake lol) and I'll hear back from Ottawa in about a week and I want to be ready to appeal should the need arise. Just a side note: I was diagnosed via family screening (my mom has it) yet I have never experienced the typical symptoms and I was an extremely healthy child!! This is what makes this so frustrating! :-SS
