Volunteer with the CSA

Volunteer with the CSA — You’re needed

The Canadian Spondylitis Association is volunteer founded, led and driven. As an all-volunteer association, the CSA needs volunteers to help in so many ways. Volunteering can be very rewarding whatever your age and circumstances.

Our goal

It is the aim of the Canadian Spondylitis Association to have active membership and participation in each province and territory. We will achieve this by having volunteer-run branches in communities where someone will take a lead in establishing and maintaining a branch.

In addition, we need representation from each province or region on our board of directors. There are opportunities for provincial/territorial representatives for Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Maritimes, excluding Newfoundland and Labrador.

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!

In your province

Get involved in your area by selecting the appropriate region to see which positions are currently available. You can contact your provincial/territorial representative if one is listed for further information. Or you can email our office.

Other opportunities

The Canadian Spondylitis Association is always looking for willing and capable volunteers, particularly if you are living with spondyloarthritis. Here are some of the opportunities that are available. If you have other ideas about how your skills can lend themselves to the growth and strengthening of the CSA, please email us.

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.
