Get involved! Volunteering can be very rewarding whatever your age and circumstances. The following positions are available.

Provincial/Territorial representatives

The CSA is looking for volunteers to fill the position of provincial or territorial representative, who will organize a local chapter of the Canadian Spondylitis Association in their province or territory.

Board member

The Canadian Spondylitis Association has board member and chair opportunities available for volunteers. Board members are responsible for input into direction and activities of the CSA.

Local contact

Local contacts make themselves available for those who are also diagnosed with SpA and need someone to talk to who understands their disease and experiences.

Branch leader

A healthy network of branches or support groups is necessary for the success of the CSA. It leads to a pool of willing, knowledgeable volunteers, closer ties with local health care providers, fundraising opportunities and a sense of community.


If you don’t see an opportunity that fits your skills or interests, email us to let us know how you can help. We’ll be happy to work with you!
