Serving the Calgary Ostomy Community

You do not have to go through this journey alone. There are hundreds of ostomates in Calgary, many of whom are a member of COS.


A new ostomy can be a challenge, but we can help by offering advice and tips to make it stick!


Are you currently in the hospital? Did you recently have ostomy surgery? We can help!

What We Offer

The Calgary Ostomy Society is a member of the Ostomy Canada Society and is dedicated to helping persons with an ileostomy, colostomy, urostomy and j-pouch.
It is a self-governing non-profit, educational health service agency with medical advisers.


COS holds a quarterly meeting in March, June, September and December, featuring guest speakers, new ostomy products, and more!


COS is a proud supporter of Ostomy Youth Camp, an annual event in Bragg Creek for children with bowel & bladder diversion surgeries.


Members receive a quarterly newsletter called Changing Times, as well as a bi-annual magazine from Ostomy Canada.
