Food Allergies

Helping Canadians live safely and confidently with food allergy

Food Allergy Canada is a national charity and the country’s leading patient organization committed to educating, supporting, and advocating for the more than 3 million Canadians impacted by food allergy. We focus on improving daily quality of life by providing education and support needed to effectively navigate this medical condition, building informed and supportive communities, and acting as the national voice on key patient issues.

Every year the Schroeder Foundation provides a $250,000 donation.
