Volunteer LogoAdvocacy volunteers are passionate voices for the six million people living with arthritis. These volunteers make their voices heard by campaigning for healthy public policy during federal and provincial elections, promoting arthritis initiatives through social media, writing letters to and meeting with elected officials, and participating in government consultations and other important advocacy calls to action.

About the role

Advocacy volunteers are key to our advocacy success. Roles within the advocacy team can be tailored to an individual’s passions, experience and availability. Our volunteers help to provide valuable input in identifying priorities, raising awareness of arthritis issues and helping to make positive policy changes for those living with arthritis. There are many ways you can make a difference: 

  • Work with us to amplify our policy recommendations to governments

  • Use social media channels to reach and connect with politicians, healthcare professionals and the wider public

  • Attend public events to advocate for people affected by arthritis

  • Join and participate in local advocacy initiatives


We have advocacy roles available across Canada, at both a local and national level.  

Volunteering with the advocacy team is a flexible role that can be adapted to suit your availability. 

For example, you can volunteer by sharing social media messages during election campaigns, or you can help us on an ongoing basis leading a local advocacy campaign. Depending on current advocacy initiatives, volunteers may be called upon more frequently during certain times (e.g., election periods, Arthritis Awareness Month).
