National Pain Awareness Week 2022

 November 6-12, 2022 is National Pain Awareness Week (NPAW) in Canada, a time to raise awareness of chronic pain and its impact on the one in five Canadians who live with it.

All people with pain in Canada, no matter who they are or where they live, should have equitable access to timely and evidence-based care and support. That's why we're joining together this National Pain Awareness Week to raise awareness and call for National action to make pain a priority.

Participating is easy

We’ve created a toolkit to help you join the conversation. It includes suggested social media posts on a wide range of topics related to chronic pain, as well as supporting graphics that you can share. View the toolkit here:
