Comments:  I recently found the GF Product information in Canada and very grateful to have in my ‘favorite file’.  Would you please keep me updated?  My son and myself are gluten free eaters and it had been challenging to find gluten free products that did not limit our diets so much.   Thanks very much.  Sheila Arnold

Comments:  I use this website everyday….I am so lost in how to ensure my son is gluten free we have been working at this since December and I still have so much to learn…if weren’t for this website we would not have made to progress we did. Its going to be a long road, but having this site certainly is making the journey feel a little shorter.

Good Morning,
Pam, I would like to thank you very much for providing such a terrific website.  I realize it has been re-done and although the old format was just fine, this new one is great!!!  It is so useful and I direct our new members in Calgary to use it lots.   I don’t know if you personally do the website or if a team of you are involved but whatever the case, congratulations and thank you!

Comments: I was delighted to discover your website, I just found out that I have Celiac Disease at the age of 78. It was a bit devastating to think that it would be difficult for my wife and I to travel now. Thanks to your site we find that there are many food stores and restaurants we can use when away from home.

Comments: Thank you so much for your personal answer. I am receiving e-mail messages and have noticed how similar the discussions in Canada are regarding products, teff, filling income tax forms and the like. I feel much more secure now about travelling and eating healthily while in Canada. It is thanks to the many volunteers and people like you who set up these web sites that other celiacs can live and travel safely.
Thank you very much for your work. Kind regards, Lies Kuijf

Comments: I’ve been quite busy, but wanted to commend you on your wonderful work with this Canadian celiac site – we are so much smaller than the US that it’s easy to lose sight of our unique Canadian celiac issues, like giving blood, income tax deductions and of course the fact that large manufacturers deliver products to us that have different ingredients than products sold in the states even though they look the same!
Kudos!! Helen in Vancouver

Comments:  Hi Penny,  Just wanted to contact you to say how wonderful the fast food listing is that you’ve put together. My 25 month-old daughter was diagnosed in April, and we get French fries from McDonalds frequently because we know they are safe. I’m thrilled that it appears there could be more to life than McDonalds – I will for sure check in advance of course, but what an excellent listing. Thank you so much!

My husband is from North York (Willowdale) and he has family all over Ontario…London, Keswick, Markam, Stouffeville and Willowdale. We have not traveled “home” since our Sept. diagnosis of celiac sprue but we are very aware that the Canadian companies seem to be ahead of the Americans in the gluten-free awareness…many of the better products are Canadian. Our Canadian relatives are not all that “up to date” on the GF products that are available, however, and your Web site should be a big help to us when we make our next trip and have to deal with recipe substitutions and restaurants. I had already found your web site before this and even had a bookmark for it. It’s a great web site that makes like so much easier for people like us! Thank You, Anne McKee (Norfolk, MA)

Hi, I just found your site under celiac disease, and a Canadian site is just what I am looking for, with Canadian product info. I just found out my brothers in law have Celiac Disease. I am married to one, and a brother in law lives with us. It is thier other brother who was diagnosed with it, and told to have family checked for it, I am going to set up appts for my husband and brother in law as they have many of the symptoms of the one who has it. I really like your website, it is full of good information, I like to cook, am interested in medical things, and would like to help these inlaws live a full and enjoyable life gluten free. I have subscribed to your celiac canada, thank you for this website, keep up the good work. Yours truly Beatrice Smith.

Hello, My name is Marylouise Gamache. My youngest daughter has celiac disease. I found your Canadian Celiac web site quite accidently. IT IS FANTASTIC!! I wish I knew about it last April! I do belong to two organizations here in the US,( we live in Rhode ISland).ANd of course our National Group.   I do contact most of the manufacturers for information about some of the food products I purchase. I was wondering if you had any advice. I generally ask for a list of their products that are gluten free, I explain some of the sources of gluten , give an example ( rice soaked in barley malt maybe one) and have just started to add the national groups email address. >Most companies that have familiarity with Celiac respond quickly others do not.  I noticed your food list had some firms I am trying to get in for from, Breyers Ice Cream, Classico Pasta Sauce ( this is the one that led me to your site). It is because you received information that I am contacting you. Obviously your procedure is great.

Subject: Canadian Citizen living in Michigan.   I have just been diagnosed with celiac disease. My doctor found a celiac sprue when he did a biopsy on my small intestine. I have only known for a few days and find it all quite overwhelming. I have been doing a lot of search on the internet about celiac disease and was so pleased to find your Canadian website. We go back and forth from Canada to the US every couple of weeks and it is so nice to know that I can find support from Canada and the US.

I am so happy to have found this site. I have recently been trying to contact companies regarding their products and whether they are gluten free or not; however, very few have responded. After reading the lists and lists of gluten free products out there, I can’t wait to go to the “real” grocery store! You have made my life much easier. I am definately going to pass this site onto other celiacs. Thank you so much.

I have just discovered the celiac-canada website after being a celiac for 20 yrs.  Terrific!  My only problem is I find the print in the www.penny.ca/Celiac2000.htm site very hard to read.  Surely I’m not the only one experiencing this?  Certainly is lots of great information and contacts on this site.  Look forward to checking it all out.

“As a recently diagnosed celiac I was overwhelmed at the amount of conflicting information I was finding on the net.  I am sure that as I become more knowledgeable I will be able to separate the “wheat from the chaff” on the net, but in the meantime, I was left wanting for a simple, accurate Canadian site. That was until I found your site.  Thanks for the celiac-canada site, it is full of useful Canadian information.  Your efforts are appreciated. ”
