Community Action Grants
The Arthritis Society is committed to extinguishing the fire of arthritis in communities across Canada. This is why we are introducing our new community action grants aimed at providing more opportunities for people to connect, learn, and thrive with arthritis in their own communities. Living with pain can be isolating, but together we can fight the fire of arthritis.
We will support communities exploring local solutions for people living with arthritis through the Arthritis Society’s community action grants. We are looking to support groups and individuals addressing arthritis-related needs specific to their communities, including health inequities and disparities that impact access to arthritis information and care.
The Arthritis Society Community Action Grants consists of two granting streams: Education and Awareness Grants, up to $1,000 each, as well as Programming Grants, up to $5,000 each.
Rheumatologists in Your Community
A Rheumatologist is an internist or pediatrician who is qualified by additional training and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and other disease of the joints, muscles, and bones.
To see a rheumatologist, you will need a referral from your family physician. A current list is available from the website of the Canadian Rheumatology Association (CRA).
