Other resources

After recovering from ostomy surgery comes life with an ostomy.

Lots of people want to connect with others who have also had surgery. On our support groups & online resources page you will find links to organizations built by people with ostomies in Canada, and the Vancouver area. You will also find information about the Ostomy Visitor program, created to link people who have had surgery or are planning surgery with someone who is living with an ostomy. And you’ll find blogs, information related to conditions that make stoma surgery necessary and other resources related to life with an ostomy.

Events & seminars is a page to check on a regular basis. Educational and social events related to ostomy, or the conditions that make ostomy surgery necessary will be listed here.

Our newsletter comes out three to four times per year and contains updates about new products, tips and tricks for making your ostomy part of your life, and other useful information on a variety of topics. You can sign up to have it delivered to your email inbox each time a new edition is released, or catch up on our past issues.

Our website covers lots of common questions. Don’t see an answer you’re looking for? Submit your question and one of our ET nurses will send a response.
