Online mentorship: Allergy Pals/Allies: 8 week program

April 27

Do you have a 7-15 years old with food allergy who would like to connect with other youth with food allergy from across Canada?

Register them for our Allergy Pals and Allergy Allies online peer mentorship program so they can learn strategies for managing food allergy and feel more confident overall. This program was created through the Social Support Research Program at the University of Alberta and is used under license by Food Allergy Canada.


  • What is it: This program includes eight weekly one-hour online support sessions on Microsoft Teams. There are two sessions offered, broken out by age: Allergy Pals/Connect – Ages 7-11, Allergy Allies – Ages 12-15.
  • Where is it: The sessions take place virtually over Teams, using safe and secure online meeting tools.Makayla's quote
  • Who is presenting: Older peer mentors with food allergy, under the guidance of a youth program coordinator. All of our mentors receive training and encourage positive conversations among group members. They will never give out medical advice and every session has a program coordinator listening in to ensure the conversations remain positive and stay on track.
  • When is it: Once registered, your child will be placed into a group on a day/time convenient for your family. The program will run starting April 27th, 2024 and will last for 8 weeks.

We have received outstanding feedback on our previous sessions, including how transformative they have been and how important it has been connecting with others who understand. Learn more about the program.

Register for the Spring session now.
