Arthritis Ideator Awards

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on October 17, 2022 in Announcements

Arthritis Society Canada is pleased to announce the 2nd annual Arthritis Ideator Awards. The program is challenging entrepreneurs to invent and tailor practical solutions that could transform the lives of the one in five Canadians living with arthritis.

More detail about the awards and how to apply can be found here.

The Arthritis Ideator Awards event will take place on Thursday, April 20, 2023, when four winners will each receive $50,000.  Learn about the inaugural event and award winners announced in April 2022.

Six million Canadians live with arthritis and there is no cure. More than half of people with the disease are under the age of 65, and it affects all ages, including children. Arthritis is a problem in desperate need of solutions. This program gives innovators access to people living with arthritis who can support beta testing, focus groups and surveys, as well as expert advice from Arthritis Society Canada and the broader arthritis ecosystem. 

Deadline: Applications are due December 21, 2022.
