Support groups are a great place to meet others, share and learn more about disease management. Our groups are a safe place for you to feel less isolated and alone! Leaders create a safe environment for everyone to share, lean on and move forward.
If you are interested in joining an existing group or starting one in your city/town, or would like information on how to start a group in your city/town, email firstname.lastname@example.org
We have recently started “virtual” group meetings to support Canadians across the country. Meetings are capped at 10 people so don’t delay registering. We have a waitlist for each meeting. With growing interest in meeting with others virtually we will expand the option as we are able.
In addition to in-person and most recently virtual support groups, we have an active and engaged Facebook community. We welcome and encourage you to become active with what suits your needs!
The Canadian Spondylitis Association cares about your health and the health of your loved ones. In attempt to flatten the curve of the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the CSA is taking measures suggested by federal and provincial health officials to suspend public gatherings until further notice.
If you are in need of support – please reach out to your group leader or contact the CSA by email at email@example.com
