Welcome letter from the President


Thank you for visiting our website.


The last few years have been very difficult for pain patients. Government officials, in an erroneous attempt to deal with problems of addiction and overdose deaths, decided that doctors have been over-prescribing opiate medications and consequently, pain patients taking opiate therapy were the cause of the problems.


Given the fact that overdose deaths continue to increase as prescriptions to patients have been drastically reduced, this policy has been a total failure while causing tremendous harm to innocent victims.


Our goal is to educate the public, people in medicine, regulatory bodies, and Health Canada on the nature and severity of chronic pain and its treatment.


We hope you enjoy our new website. We will be making our voices known through social media and giving guidance to pain patients and their families along the way on how they can join us in this endeavour.


We are a group of volunteers and we can’t do it without your support. Now is the time for all Canadian pained voices to be heard!


Sincerely,



Terry Bremner, President

Chronic Pain Association of Canada

 


A 2019 survey by the Chronic Pain Association of Canada (CPAC) finds that chronic pain patients are experiencing a decline in quality of life, an increase in pain, the destruction of doctor-patient relationships, and suicide risks and attempts.
