Support for Canadians living with arthritis

Woman typing on a laptopArthritis Connections is a virtual program that brings together people living with arthritis and provides them with opportunities to engage and to learn from each other by breaking down the isolation that sometimes comes with the disease. It is building a community of peers where people can share their experience and have open and honest discussion about their lives with arthritis, within a supportive virtual environment.

Arthritis Connections live-only interactive sessions are hosted on Zoom Meetings and provide a virtual space for people living with arthritis to come together, learn about their disease and build relationships.

Arthritis Connections programs are now offered in two different formats, Conversations with Peers and Conversations with Arthritis Professionals. Learn more about each type below:
