How Your Gift Helps

The fire of arthritis scorches the lives of six million of our loved ones, friends and neighbours. It is Canada’s most common chronic condition, yet it rarely gets the attention it deserves. That’s why the Arthritis Society is on a mission to change the conversation and let the world know it’s not “just” arthritis.

Fortunately, we’re fueled by a community of generous, loyal supporters who share our commitment to fighting the fire of arthritis with the fire of research, innovation, advocacy, and information and support.
