Arthritis Research Centre of Canada

Arthritis Research Centre is a leading arthritis research environment building strong multi-disciplinary research teams of outstanding medical doctors and research scientists from around the world. ARC is dedicated to understanding, advancing and sharing knowledge about the causes of arthritis, and addressing issues that are impacting people with arthritis right now.

Created in 2000 by the Board of The Arthritis Society, BC and Yukon Division in recognition of the tremendous potential that research can bring to arthritis treatment in Canada, and indeed, the world, ARC, in April 2002, became an independent organization that continues to work closely with The Arthritis Society for the benefit of all people with arthritis.
