Government Central

In this section, you can access tools to use when communicating about The Arthritis Society's advocacy priorities with government, whether provincial/territorial or federal, elected or non-elected.

Federal Government

Health care is climbing higher on the national political agenda every day. Now is an excellent time to advocate for arthritis issues with your local member of parliament (MP) in Ottawa. The Arthritis Society appreciates your help in advancing any or all of these issues with your local MPs.

Provincial Government

The issues facing people living with arthritis are high on provincial political agendas, particularly with several provincial governments having had elections in the Fall of 2011, and many others heading into pre-election mode. Advocating for arthritis issues in your province has never been more important.
