A world free of arthritis


Throughout its existence, CAN’s mission has been to improve the quality of life of people with arthritis, decrease the personal, societal and economic burden of the disease and promote the growth of the Canadian economy through arthritis research and development in areas of unmet need. 

As CAN looks to its remaining years and beyond, and with the conclusion of its research and development programs, it aims to further its mission by mobilizing its expertise and network-sponsored discoveries and innovations for impact and to sustain its most valuable functions and programs beyond the term of NCE funding.
