Anaphylaxis Canada has helped raise public awareness about life-threatening allergies, making Canada a safer place for individuals at risk. In the past few years, we've developed:

  • Two first-rate websites
  • The S.A.F.E. (Support Allergic Friends Everywhere) program for schools
  • An expanded newsletter that reaches all Canadian allergists
  • The Canadian Anaphylaxis Registry
  • Several research projects
  • The Canadian Anaphylaxis Research Award
  • Phone support services

We have been asked to advise as consultants to the media, Health Canada, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, the Canadian School Boards Association, the food and travel industries, and the Hospital for Sick Children.

We have been able to do this valuable work thanks to the generous donations we receive each year. But much remains to be done.

A new way to give with ECHOage

Anaphylaxis Canada is pleased to let you know that we have been selected by as one of its charities of choice. is a charity-driven, eco-friendly birthday party service for children and parents. ECHOage provides an opportunity for children to celebrate their birthdays with their friends and family in an environmentally-friendly way. Instead of bringing a wrapped and packaged present, guests simply RSVP and make a secure online contribution to the birthday child.

ECHOage collects all of the contributions received and sends half the proceeds to the child for the purchase of ONE special gift and makes a donation to the charity of their choice with the balance. ECHOage takes care of all online donations received, making it easy for guests to participate in this memorable event. This concept allows the children to learn the value of giving and receiving while celebrating their special day.

I Enjoy a Great Life
To look at me, I am a perfectly normal kid. I enjoy rock climbing, horseback riding and I play the drums, but I suffer from anaphylaxis.

This is a life-threatening allergic reaction. In my case it is an allergy to nuts, seeds and coconut.

I'd like everybody who reads this to take allergies seriously. Any kid who has trouble coping should just remember that we're all special and that my allergies don't stop me from participating and enjoying life.
What is Anaphylaxis?
Anaphylaxis (anna - fill -axis) is a serious allergic reaction. It can be life-threatening. Food is the most common cause of anaphylaxis, but insect stings, medicine, latex, or exercise can also cause a reaction. The commonest food allergens are peanuts, tree nuts, seafood, egg and milk products.
