News From Our CEO

Today I am so pleased to introduce to you, our valued supporters, a new Arthritis Society.

We have a renewed sense of purpose to place an even greater focus on serving and supporting the millions of people affected by arthritis- a disease that now affects 1 in 5 Canadians and is set to rise to 1 in 4 in the not too distant future.  It will continue to limit the lives of millions, unless there are dramatic changes in attitude, research and treatment. There is no cure.   Our vision is to live in a world where people are free from the devastating effects that arthritis has on lives.

To achieve that vision;

  • we are committed to investing in cutting-edge research, proactive advocacy and innovative solutions that deliver better health outcomes for people with arthritis
  • we have a bold new visual identity that is designed to draw much more attention to arthritis
  • we have a new website full of important, evidence- based information and resources, as well as tips and solutions to help those living with arthritis achieve a better quality of life. 

We feel it is time to overcome Canada’s most pervasive chronic health condition. We hope you agree.   As always, your support for people affected by arthritis makes an incredible difference. Thank you.
