WHAT WE DO

Arthritis Research Canada is the largest clinical arthritis research centre in North America.

Our mission is to transform the lives of people living with arthritis through research and engagement. Led by Scientific Director, Dr. Diane Lacaille, Arthritis Research Canada’s scientific team of over 100 are creating a future where people living with arthritis are empowered to triumph over pain and disability.

With centres in British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec, Arthritis Research Canada is leading research aimed at arthritis prevention, early diagnosis, better treatment, and improved quality of life.

Arthritis is the most common health reason why Canadians stop working. One in five living with rheumatoid arthritis leave the workforce within five years of receiving a diagnosis. And almost half of working-age Canadians with osteoarthritis report not working or attending school. Our scientists have developed a one-of-a-kind, online program, called Making it Work™ to help people with arthritis lead healthy, productive work lives. Learn More

OUR LATEST RESEARCH

At Arthritis Research Canada, we conduct research that helps people with arthritis continue to live their lives today. What does that mean? Prevention is our top priority, but we are also working to find ways for people with the disease to stay in the workforce, continue doing physical activities they love, manage pain and symptoms and much more.
