Arthritis Learning Centres

Our three regional offices offer Learning Centres, which are stocked with resources available to assist you in finding the right information, service or program to help you. Our resources include books, magazines, brochures, VHS tapes, CDs and DVDs on arthritis and wellness-related topics, which can be borrowed for up to three weeks at a time. Each Learning Centre also has knowledgeable staff and trained volunteers who are there to answer your questions and provide you with valuable information on arthritis. Whether you are a family member, newly diagnosed or someone who has lived with arthritis long-term, we are here to help you.

Throughout the year we also offer valuable public forums and arthritis education events to help you better understand arthritis and manage your disease. Our public forums feature top rheumatologists and other health-care professionals, while our programs are run by highly trained volunteers - most of whom live with the disease.
