The Arthritis Society is Canada's only not-for-profit organization devoted solely to funding and promoting arthritis research, programs and patient care. It has a national administrative office in Toronto, division offices in each province and nearly 1,000 community branches throughout Canada.
Supporting and providing research, patient care and public education programs that benefit the millions of Canadians with arthritis is no small task. But The Arthritis Society receives widespread support from tens of thousands of volunteers and donors across the country to help us achieve those goals. As a result, we're able offer help and hope to people with arthritis across the country. A 18-member national board is responsible for managing and controlling the activities of the Society. The voluntary board includes representatives from each division, as well as other members recruited from across Canada. National staff provide administrative support for the board and facilitate cross-country initiatives such as research, direct mail and corporate partnerships. Each division operates within this structure, navigating with local operating procedures established by their respective board of directors. Divisions are responsible primarily for fundraising, promoting and/or providing patient or client care, delivering education programs and providing advocacy at the local level.
