Arthritis Consumer Experts is a national organization that provides free, science-based information and education programs in both official languages to people with arthritis.

ACE is guided by a strict set of guiding principles, set out by an advisory board comprised of leading scientists, medical professionals and informed arthritis consumers.

Arthritis Consumer Experts and its team members acknowledge that they gather and work on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples - xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.




The Canadian Arthritis Patient Alliance (CAPA) is Canada’s only volunteer-based arthritis patient organization run by patients, for patients. True to its grassroots nature, CAPA is entirely patient-driven, independent, and supports a community of people living with arthritis across the nation. Our belief is that the first expert on arthritis is the person who lives with arthritis and provides a critical voice and perspective that needs to be heard in decision-making. 



Cassie and Friends is a national, patient and parent-led organization whose mission is to transform the lives of children and families affected by Juvenile Arthritis (JA) and other rheumatic diseases through research, connection, information and support. With the help of youth, parents, pediatric rheumatology teams, answer-seeking champions (aka researchers) and other friends, we’re committed to rapidly increasing JA research and support so we can get kids from diagnosis to remission as quickly, safely and as pain-free as possible. Our main programs include a virtual education series, online resource hub, peer support network, equipment cupboards and Team Cassie + Friends - our annual run/walk. Since 2007, we have raised over $3 million towards our vision of a pain-free future for kids. We welcome anyone interested to get involved!
