Does someone you know have a life-threatening allergy? Do you?

We can help.

Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that can be life threatening. Food is the most common cause of anaphylaxis, but insect stings, medicine, latex, or exercise can also cause a reaction.

It has been estimated that 3% to 4% of Canadians representing approximately 1.3 million people have a food allergy (Source: Health Canada).These statistics are similar to recent U.S. data, which suggest that nearly 4% of the US population, or 1 in 25 Americans, is at risk for food allergy alone, a rate much higher than noted in the past. Canadian trends are thought to mirror those of the US, given similarities in lifestyle. (Source: )

Whether you are living with the allergy yourself, caring for someone who is, or concerned about people in your community, we trust that you will find what you need to help make things safer.

Together we can all make a difference.
