The Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) is conducting a survey of the Canadian celiac community to gain perspective on positive experiences or challenges facing people with celiac disease currently living in a long-term care facility or those feeling anxious about moving themselves or family into one.
- The survey takes approximately 6 minutes to complete
- Information provided on the survey will be anonymous and confidential
- Findings will be used by CCA to identify gaps, suggest recommendations and/or tools to improve the quality of care for community members living or heading into a long-term care facility.
The Canadian Celiac Association is the national voice for all Canadians adversely affected by gluten. To make sure we are working on your behalf as best we can, we are planning to review of our priorities and the support, awareness and advocacy work we do.
You are a valuable member of our online community, and we would greatly appreciate it if you could take around ten minutes and complete a short survey to help us as we move forward. We’d request your input no later than March 18.
All Canadians with a “gluten problem” are invited to participate. All opinions are welcome.

If it seems like “gluten free” is the new dieting catchphrase, you’re not imagining it. The vast majority of consumers responding to a new survey by Vitacost.com, Inc., a online retailer of health and wellness products, said they choose to eat gluten-free foods. Close to half of the 1,484 individuals who responded said they follow an exclusively gluten-free diet, while 38% choose “some” gluten-free products. Those who don’t eat gluten-free foods say the products are too expensive.
The nationwide survey asked individuals about their efforts to follow a gluten-free diet and delved into reasons why consumers avoid gluten. Forty percent said they choose gluten-free foods because they tend to have an upset stomach after eating foods containing this protein, which is found in wheat, barley and rye. Meanwhile, 31% choose gluten-free foods because they see them as the “healthier” option. Only 13% of those taking the survey said they had celiac disease, a condition diagnosed with a blood test.
“We have seen increased interest in our gluten-free products and conducted this survey to better understand consumer needs and concerns around this specialty diet,” stated David Zucker, Ph.D., Chief Marketing Officer.
