While one in five of us experience pain, it disproportionately impacts people living in poverty, people living with mental health and substance use conditions, those working in the trades, veterans, Indigenous Peoples, some racialized communities, LGBTQ2S communities, people who have experienced trauma, persons with disabilities, and women.
Pain Canada is the home-base for the eight million people in Canada living with chronic pain. Created in response to Health Canada’s 2021 report An Action Plan for Pain in Canada, this multi-stakeholder initiative creates new opportunities for action by connecting people, ideas, organizations and resources to enable a national movement.
Whether you're a person with pain, family members, health care provider or researcher, we have resources for you.
