By becoming a member of Pain BC, you help in many ways:
- Your membership fee supports the organization
- Your voice is heard at the Annual General Meeting
- Your name adds strength to the organization—our growing membership gives us more influence in the province
Pain BC is a non-profit organization that has been leading efforts to reduce the burden of pain on individuals, families, and communities in British Columbia. As a Pain BC member, you can be part of our efforts to change pain and change lives.
The Canadian health system is operating on an outdated understanding of pain. Growing awareness of the human and financial costs of chronic pain has catalyzed an international movement to address the needs of people living with pain. Pain BC is adding our voice to others around the world calling for increased recognition of pain and improved pain management.
There are three tiers of membership:
- Regular member: $15

Memberships are valid for the calendar year in which you pay your membership fee (Jan-Dec). To be able to vote at the AGM, you must have paid your membership fee for that calendar year (i.e. Jan-May, to attend the 2018 AGM).
