Hi I live in Vancouver B.C. Canada, I have heard that some people in the US can get a Crohn's Card which entitles the holder to use any washroom facilities.  An example is if u need to go but the store u are in has an employee restroom but not one for the public.  The card would be proof that it is an emergency and u really need to use the bathroom.  Does anyone know if there is anything like this in Canada?  Thanks

I dont know about in Canada.  I actually upon reading many posts on the card went searching for information about Oregon and the bathroom card.  All I found was this website http://myibd.org/RestroomMedalert/index.php
 I filled out the information there and should get my card in 2-3 weeks it says.  Maybe there is a site for other countries as well or maybe on that site there is an option for other countries.

I found it-I just went to the myibd.org and found the restroom card. I just ordered one. I have one from CCFA somewhere, but I'm not sure where. I stupidly assumed I wouldn't need it again after I was in remission for so long.

I only ever had the CCFA's 'I Can't Wait Card,' but it doesn't carry any legal obligation. I couldn't renew it either because I couldn't afford the membership.

Currently taking: Prednisone 5 mg, pentasa 2 pills 4x a day, omeprazole in the morning, and a women's multivitamin. I'm also trying a B vitamin complex, but it doesn't seem to be working so I'm considering the shots.
Diet almost completely without refined sugars, wheat, flour, gluten, high lactose dairy, and/or junk food in general.

OK, no idea why it's not showing up as link you can click on - just copy/paste the URL. I ordered a card from them as well! I know the address is a good one. turn
