 Making Fibromyalgia Visible

Our purpose is to make Fibromyalgia visible by:

  • bringing together persons with Fibromyalgia from across Canada;

  • strengthening our presence and influence with government decision-makers;

  • using our experiences with Fibromyalgia symptoms to increase medical interests and investments in Fibromyalgia-focused research; and

  • offering patient-led educational opportunities to those interested in learning more about the impact of Fibromyalgia on one's quality of life and daily living.

ABOUT

We are a community-based, voluntary organization founded by people with Fibromyalgia, for people with Fibromyalgia, their caregivers, and families.  FAC was federally incorporated as a not-for-profit organization on June 15, 2021.   

As a national Association, we believe it is fundamental that our leadership represent the diversity, geography and marginalized communities in Canada.  We are committed to being a national association for all Canadians, regardless of where they live, accessibility needs, and whether they speak English or French.  With the help of volunteer translators, we are able to provide a bilingual website. 

Our governing body, the Steering Committee, endeavours to have representation from all Canada's provinces and territories.  Only Persons with Fibromyalgia(PwFM) are eligible to serve on the Steering Committee.  Two Association Co-Convenors provide leadership, facilitation, guidance and strategic vision for FAC.

The Steering Committee has identified four key areas of focus: 

  1. Awareness

  2. Research

  3. Education

  4. Advocacy

Each of these core areas is managed by a Standing Committee which is responsible for identifying, considering, and recommending actions and project initiatives, subject to final approval by the Steering Committee.  Steering Committee members are selected and appointed by the Steering Committee to the role of Committee Co-Lead, two for each Standing Committee.
