It’s not just arthritis. It’s a juggling act.
1 in 5 Canadians live with the pain of arthritis.
Arthritis is not an older person’s disease.
As many as 25,000 Canadian children seek healthcare for arthritis.
Arthritis is a complex disease.
It costs the economy billions every year.
We’re Canada’s largest charitable funder of arthritis research, helping spark new ideas and igniting careers to improve care for people today, and to find a cure for people tomorrow.
We are investing in breakthrough, high-risk, high-reward research, collaborating on social impact projects to create transformational health change, and accelerating the success of innovators by getting their solutions to those that need them most.
Together with our fierce volunteers, we’re fighting the fire of arthritis by advocating to all levels of government about pressing policy issues affecting the six million Canadians living with arthritis coast to coast to coast.
We’re creating patient-centred, evidence-based information resources and developing critical programs to help people with arthritis flourish and empower their care networks to support them.
