Arthritis Society
Region: Winnipeg area Type: Full time
Location: Winnipeg Salary: (not entered)

Arthritis comes in many forms. It can lead to significant, often irreparable, damage to your joints, skin, organs and other areas of the body. Pain, fatigue, loss of function, disability, even death can result. There is no cure. One in five Canadians is diagnosed with arthritis; for many adults and some children, it is a life sentence. The Arthritis Society is working hard to change that by raising awareness, supporting people with arthritis, advocating for public policies as a critical patient voice, and funding vital research.


A career at the Arthritis Society is more than just a job. It’s an opportunity to use your talents to make a difference in the lives of people affected by arthritis. Our new strategic plan, Accelerating Impact, conveys a vision for growth as we work to meet the needs of increasing numbers of people (six million Canadians of all ages) impacted by this devastating disease. In addition to work that has a positive impact, you will be joining an organization that embraces innovation and is committed to being a great place to work. We are an energizing corporate culture, constantly learning, rigorously measuring our work, and building on our achievements to reach more people nationwide. Our people are essential to this success and we will empower you to be successful in your role. The Arthritis Society is proud to be accredited under Imagine Canada’s Standards Program.
