Baring It All is a collaboration between the following organizations.


The Canadian Arthritis Patient Alliance (CAPA) works with various groups in the arthritis community to ensure the voice of people living with arthritis is heard and to bring you up-to-date information on issues that affect the arthritis community. We work with healthcare professionals, health organizations,clinicians, industry, health charities, researchers, and various levels of government. We keep Canadian people living with arthritis and their support groups understand more about their disease and have a voice in managing it.


The Canadian Association of Psoriasis Patients (CAPP) was formed in 2012 to serve people impacted by psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. CAPP’s mission is to be a resource to these people by improving their quality of life, raising awareness, providing education, advocating for better access to care and treatments, and supporting research.


The Canadian Psoriasis Network (CPN) is a national, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of people in Canada who live with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. CPN does this by providing current information on research and treatment options, by supporting efforts toward a cure, and by working with others to build awareness and advocacy about the complexities of these conditions.


The Canadian Spondylitis Association (CSA) is the only patient-led, not-for-profit organization developed for and solely focused on supporting Canadians living with spondyloarthritis (SpA).  The mission of the CSA is to be the leading voice for the spondylarthritis community in Canada, raising awareness and providing support, education, and advocacy for patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals. Its vision is that all of those living with, or affected by, SpA receive timely diagnosis and treatment, make informed choices about their well-being, and are supported by a thriving spondyloarthritis community.

We appreciate the educational grants from UCB Canada to develop the survey and this report.
