    Janet Yale is the President and CEO of the Arthritis Society (Canada), a role that she began in June 2012. Janet is a lawyer and an economist who previously served as the executive vice president at TELUS, and president and CEO of the Canadian Cable Television Association, along with other corporate roles in private, public and not-for-profit organizations. Early in her career Janet was the director general at the CRTC and general counsel to the Consumers’ Association of Canada.

    Retiring from TELUS in 2010, Janet transferred 25 years of corporate knowledge and skills successfully into the not-for-profit sector. Currently Janet chairs the Arthritis Alliance of Canada, Past-Chair of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and serves on the boards of Samara and the Ottawa Art Gallery. Janet is a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth 11 Diamond Jubilee Medal. She is also a marathon runner and mother.

    The Arthritis Society is a national health charity fueled by donors and volunteers, with a vision to live in a world where people are free from the devastating effects that arthritis has on lives. Janet is responsible for leading the organization in their mission of helping people live well with arthritis while searching for a cure. The Arthritis Society funds life altering research, develops and implements educational and service programing both in person and on-line, leads advocacy work to drive meaningful policy change and executes awareness programs so that people are aware of the toll of arthritis and what can be done to alleviate their pain.

    Janet leads a corporate organization, with regional offices across the country providing local programs and resources to people living with arthritis and Catherine Harwood is the Regional Development Manager of Eastern Ontario.

    The Ottawa Regional office provides information regarding education, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social work support, individual assessments and services and educational groups for people with osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis and fibromyalgia.

    Catherine accepted our invitation to speak last summer and then in December she sent me an E-mail with incredible news as she described it, that Janet would be able to present at our meeting. Catherine and Janet will be accompanied by their clinician and are promising a very engaging presentation with hopefully many questions.

    Please join us to hear Janet, Catherine and their clinician discuss Arthritis: Dispelling the Myths.
