As the proud voice for people affected by arthritis in Canada, we often speak up and speak out to capture the attention of decision-makers at both the Federal and Provincial levels. Our advocacy goals:

We pursue this work in a variety of ways:

  • champion the needs of people with arthritis to drive positive policy changes
  • increase awareness and understanding of arthritis in Canada

We pursue these goals through meetings with key federal and provincial decision-makers, presentations to Parliamentary and legislative committees, publishing policy papers and analyses on vital issues, sector consultations and coalitions, public awareness campaigns and other means.

The most important part of our advocacy is YOU.

We can only be credible and effective advocates for the needs of people with arthritis if we have the backing and involvement of grassroots advocates at the community level. People like you. So speak up and be heard!
