The Ottawa Anaphylaxis Support Group (OASG) is a volunteer group dedicated to individuals or families affected by allergies and anaphylaxis. Our mandate is to share anaphylaxis-related information and promote allergy awareness in and around the greater Ottawa/Gatineau area. We are affiliated with Anaphylaxis Canada.

We currently have about 120 member families - most with FA kids, but several members are adults with FAs. Members are from both Ontario and Quebec.

Click here to access our web site.

We meet once a month all year round. Every other meeting has a speaker, while the ones in between are less formal and more support-oriented, without a specific topic. See the web site's Meetings page for more details.

Other benefits of being a member:
- You get to participate in our private Google Groups forum (a great way to share info and concerns with other group members)
- We have a members-only book and video library (see the Library link on our website for details)
- The biggest benefit is the local support and knowledge (just when you thought you'd never find any sesame-seed-free wholegrain bread - another member tells you where to find it)

Come and check us out if you're in the Ottawa/Gatineau area. All are welcome.
