Arthritis Connections

Aide entrAide

Peer-to-peer guidance and support for Canadians living with arthritis

Woman typing on a laptopArthritis Connections (Aide entrAide in Quebec) connects 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 provide a virtual space for people living with arthritis to come together, learn about their disease and build relationships.

The sessions are not recorded, so don’t miss our next event!

The interactive live sessions are hosted on Zoom Meetings and consist of:

  • 20-minute information and questions & answers session led by an arthritis healthcare expert

  • 30-minute small breakout room discussions with peers which are volunteer-led, helping you to engage in supportive conversations about living with arthritis

If we have an upcoming event, registration information will be displayed above. If you don’t see a current event but want to be informed about the next live Arthritis Connections event, sign up to receive notification about upcoming events!
