The Arthritis Society

Arthritis Rehabilitation and Education Program (AREP)

The Arthritis Society offers client based programs and services for those living with arthritis in Ontario via the Arthritis Rehabilitation and Education Program (AREP).
Our physiotherapists, occupational therapists and social workers have advanced training in the management of arthritis. They are available to assess and provide a variety of services and ideas to help people of all ages living with arthritis. (source)


How Much Does AREP Cost?


These services are free (funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care).

AREP operates under the terms of a ‘Multi-Sector Service Accountability Agreement (M-SAA)’ with the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). As per the transparency requirements of the agreement, please find the most up-to-date copies of the ‘M-SAA Agreement’ and our ‘Declaration of Compliance’ below. These documents are available for public view and hard copies may be obtained at all Arthritis Society operating locations in Ontario.
