Arthritis is one of the leading causes of Long-Term Disability in Canada. It is not just an “old person’s disease,” it affects 1 in 1,000 Canadian children, and can develop at any point during a person’s life. There are over 100 different types of arthritis, some of which can be fatal. In Prince Edward Island, we have one of the highest rates of arthritis in Canada- affecting over 22,000 individuals. Here is your chance to make a difference and help us reach the 22,000 Islanders living with arthritis.
