The Canadian Pain Task Force is leading a national consultation. Our aim is to help the Government of Canada better understand and address the needs of the millions of Canadians who live with pain.

We invite you to share your experience and ideas on this topic. Your input will shape our report to Health Canada in June 2020. At that time we will outline elements of an improved approach to pain in Canada.

This consultation will be open online from February 27 to May 29, 2020.

It will take approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete the questionnaire, depending on how much input you would like to give. You can save your work at any point and submit your response any time before the closing date. Please note, for your input to be considered, you must click SUBMIT on the last page of the questionnaire.

We encourage you to share the questionnaire with others. Please include your family, friends and anyone else you may know who would like to improve how we address pain in Canada.

You may also wish to review the first Task Force report for background information. That report describes current strengths and weaknesses across the following themes:

We encourage you to think about any of these themes that are important to you when giving your input.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    The first Task Force report outlined strengths and weaknesses in how we currently approach pain in Canada. It shows a clear need for more coordinated and collaborative action to improve the health and wellbeing of people living with pain.

    We want to hear from you. We would like your help to identify ways that we can better understand, prevent and manage pain. Please share your ideas, knowledge and experience to let us know what is working, what is not working and what can be done to improve the lives of people impacted by pain.
