About Community Action Grants

Arthritis Society Canada is committed to extinguishing the fire of arthritis in communities across Canada. This is why we have introduced our 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.

Community Action Grants support communities exploring local solutions. 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.

Arthritis affects 1 in 5 people over the age of 15, and almost half of people over the age of 65. This program will help community members, groups and organizations deliver arthritis and joint pain related programs, services, or information directly in communities.

The Community Action Grant program will be launching again, with applications opening in September 2024. The funding cycle is expected to take place from March 2025 to February 2026.
