Mission Statement

Serving People with Ostomies, Care Givers, and Medical Professionals

Ostomy Toronto is a not-for-profit, charitable organization of caring volunteers providing knowledge and experience to people who have been impacted by or are living with an ostomy as a result of a gastrointestinal or urinary diversion by providing support, education and a community to allow them to move on with their lives.


Our Organization

A Service Based Organization of Caring Volunteers

Ostomy Toronto is a not-for-profit registered charity and a chapter of the United Ostomy Association of Canada Inc. (UOAC), a volunteer-run health organization dedicated to assisting people who have or will have intestinal or urinary tract diversions. We provide emotional support, educational services and support to the family unit.

Our services include informative monthly meetings, a resource centre filled with information and up-to-date news for people living with ostomies, their families, caregivers and friends living in the Greater Toronto area, and excellent publications.

In addition, Ostomy Toronto offers patients a visiting service. Trained and certified visitors are available upon request of the attending physicians, Enterostomal Therapists, nurses, family members, friends, or the patient. Pre- and post-operative visits are available. For this service, as well as for general information, please contact us atinfo@ostomytoronto.com or call (416) 596-7718.

We welcome bequests and donations and provide a receipt for donations of $25 or more for income tax purposes.
