Ontario 2018 provincial election

A provincial election will be held in Ontario (ON) on June 7, 2018. Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE) advocates that arthritis, a disease affecting more than 2 million Ontario residents, should be an issue of great importance to candidates running for office.

ACE sent an open letter and a survey to candidates running in the Ontario election. As part of its core government outreach activities and in the spirit of non-partisanship, ACE outlines the impact of arthritis in Ontario and asks each candidate to share how government can improve prevention, treatment and care in Ontario.

Any responses received by ACE will be archived and posted as they arrive.
