"An estimated 7.63 million, or one in four Canadians aged 15 or older, live with chronic pain – a condition that although often invisible, is now understood as a disease in its own right. It is often interwoven with other chronic conditions and can affect people across their lifetime. Chronic pain has significant impacts on physical and mental health, family and community life, society, and the economy, with the total direct and indirect cost of $38.3 to $40.4 billion in 2019"--Overview, page 5.
