Dear candidate,

Thank you for taking the time to visit the BC provincial election section of Please take the time to read the election package below as it contains important information about arthritis, a disease affecting more than 600,000 British Columbians.

People with arthritis are looking to government for leadership on the arthritis crisis in British Columbia. As arthritis is currently a significantly underserved disease group, the next BC government has a tremendous opportunity to make British Columbia the best place in Canada to live with arthritis.

By addressing arthritis prevention, treatment, and care as an important issue in this election, you as a candidate, along with your party, have the opportunity to show leadership on this issue.

Following the election Arthritis Consumer Experts will be contacting key MLAs to discuss arthritis in British Columbia. We look forward to working with you on this issue.
