Camp means memories

It was a wonderful, adventure-filled week in July, the result of the efforts of a team of tremendous people! Thank you so much to the fabulous kids who made the experience so meaningful for everyone involved.  


The Osteoarthritis Tool: what is it and how will it help the arthritis community

Great news for the arthritis community! Recently, a new tool was developed to help improve care for Canadians living with osteoarthritis (OA), called Osteoarthritis Tool, thanks to the partnership between The Arthritis Alliance of Canada (AAC), the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CPFC) and the Centre for Effective Practice (CEP). As a member of the AAC, The Arthritis Society is proud to support this resource and to introduce it to our community!

Our community partner, Pain BC, is holding the Second BC Provincial Pediatric Pain Management Symposium September 22 - 24, 2017. We are pleased to tell you about this event, and to share that The Arthritis Society, BC & Yukon Division, is a proud sponsor.

Richmond Arthritis Group – Support, Sharing and Socializing

If you live in or near the Richmond area, we would like to tell you about this special group.  The Richmond Arthritis Support Group is made up of friendly, caring members, and provides valuable support in a variety of ways for people living with arthritis.

Cassie & Friends Family Day – September 16!

The Arthritis Society is very pleased to tell you about Cassie & Friends’ upcoming Family Day!  This is a fun and informative event for families living with Juvenile Arthritis and other rheumatic conditions.  It provides a wonderful opportunity for families from around the province to connect and create relationships, and The Arthritis Society is happy to provide travel bursaries to help families from outside the Lower Mainland attend.

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