We are a volunteer group working to raise awareness about the prevalence and impacts of chronic pain. 

We maintain support groups throughout our region, run awareness campaigns, display street banners and organize informative events during National Pain Awareness Week, and frequently reach out to politicians, doctors, educators and other key "influencers". We have compiled facts, resources, a news  letter and other information in this website. We hope you find it helpful.

We strive to support patients and to advocate for improved and equal access to pharmaceuticals and treatment on behalf of all chronic pain sufferers in Atlantic Canada. Our vision is to make chronic pain a key health issue that is no longer invisible.

If you would like to add beneficial news to our website, please contact us at help@paincantwait.ca.
