  • Mission:
  • Our mission is to lead the fight against diabetes by helping people with diabetes live healthy lives while we work to find a cure. We deliver our mission by:

    - providing people with diabetes and healthcare professionals with education and services
    - advocating on behalf of people with diabetes
    - supporting research
    - translating research into practical applications

  • Overview:
  • We are a member-based, independently governed charitable association, founded in 1953 by Dr. Charles Best, co-discoverer of insulin. In North Western Ontario, we have over 20,000 people who have been diagnosed with diabetes. Thunder Bay has over 12,000 people who have been diagnosed with diabetes, and one in three people are at risk of developing diabetes.

    Today, the Association is active in more than 150 Canadian communities and supports people living with diabetes through research, advocacy, education and services. We are supported in our efforts by a community-based network of volunteers, employees, healthcare professionals, researchers and partners.
