Canadian Arthritis Patient Alliance
Canadian Arthritis Patient Alliance (CAPA) is a grass-root, patient-driven, independent, national organization with members across Canada and supporters both Canadian and International. CAPA believes the first expert on arthritis is the individual who has the disease, theirs is a unique perspective. We assist members to become advocates not only for themselves but all people with arthritis.
CAPA facilitates links between Canadians with arthritis and their support systems through collaboration and partnerships with other organizations, representatives from all levels of government, researchers, and other individuals to help achieve CAPA's strategic priorities. The organization communicates the latest news on health policy issues, research, technology and emerging issues relevant to members through its website and Facebook pages. CAPA welcomes all Canadians with arthritis and those who support CAPA's goals to become members.
