Donate now to make life‑changing research and programs possible

The fire of arthritis rages for six million Canadians who live with its devastating pain each day. But your donation today can — and will — make a positive difference.

Your support will ensure we can continue funding the innovative arthritis research, education resources, and advocacy programs millions of Canadians with arthritis are counting on.

You are making a difference in the lives of Canadians who, every day, feel the searing flare of arthritis.


“Arthritis is not just a disease of older people, and not just a simple disease of swollen joints. Your entire body is affected and challenged with internal medicine issues. Research and innovation can make the journey and quality of life with arthritis tolerable and minimize the potential for disability or life-altering side effects. Arthritis Society Canada offers a lot of programs, including Arthritis Talks webinars, videos, online information, support programs and the Arthritis Line. These efforts are very worthy of support and critical for both young and older people battling this fire every day.”

- Mark Sack, diagnosed with arthritis in 1974 at age 13 and involved with Arthritis Society Canada since 1977 as a donor, and now as a member of the National Council.

Fight the fire of arthritis with your gift today.

Our promise to you: Arthritis Society Canada is committed to honouring your generosity and using your donation in the most effective way. If funds are raised in excess of those needed to support the designated purpose, Arthritis Society Canada acting reasonably may designate the donation towards the highest priority needs of the organization.
