The Arthritis Society is a not-for-profit organization funding and promoting
arthritis research, programs and patient care. Based in Toronto, it has a
division in each province and some 1,000 community branches all over the
country. The Arthritis Society traces back to the Canadian Rheumatic Disease
Association, formed in 1936 in Ottawa, and refounded in 1946 as the Canadian
Rheumatism Association (CRA); incorporated in 1947, the Canadian Arthritis and
Rheumatism Society (CARS) was renamed the Arthritis Society in 1977.

On 5 November 2006 in the morning, members of the ArthroAction team of the Arthritis Society, displayed the flag of the Society on the top of Kilimanjaro. The event was part of a fundraising campaign of the Society. The flag, shown on a photo published in "Le Jacques Cartier" on 22 December 2006, is blue with the emblem of the society - a blue bird - enclosed in a white square with rounded angles.
