Our mission is to contribute to the direction and funding of arthritis research, defend the rights of Quebecers living with this disease and offer them solutions to improve their quality of life.
The Society is fortunate to have the support of a large number of volunteers to help in various areas such as helping people with arthritis and promotion of information about the disease.
The money raised each year by the Company are shared between the medical and scientific research, services to people, information and public awareness.
The Arthritis Society also offers financial support to four Arthritis Research Centers (ARC) of Quebec, which dedicated to arthritis research, treatment of sufferers and teaching. Each unit has its own research field and is in a university hospital: University Hospital Centre in Montreal, McGill University Health Centre, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Sherbrooke and the University Hospital of Quebec.
