Consumer priorities survey

We’re conducting a survey to determine how Canadians – both consumers and health professionals – view priorities in arthritis care.

Disability Tax Credit

Disability Tax Credit

Many people living with mobility restrictions due to arthritis are not aware that they may be eligible for a tax credit which could result in thousands of dollars in tax savings. Find out whether this might be an option for you or your loved one.

Ease of Use


Our Ease-of-Use program encourages manufacturers to design products and packaging that are easy to use for people living with arthritis. Check out our program participants, including Premier Care Bathing’s step-in bath solutions, and Flexon’s gardening hose connector.

A small gesture can make a big difference. We can erase the pain of arthritis together and help millions of people in the process.
