About

The Canadian Diabetes Association is a national charity and membership association, founded in 1953 by Dr. Charles Best, co-discoverer of insulin. Our value driven culture is committed to excellence, partnership, innovation, integrity and respect.
 
They are supported by a community-based network of volunteers, members, employees, healthcare professionals, researchers and partners. By providing education and services to people living with diabetes, advocating on their behalf, supporting innovative research and setting the standard for diabetes care, we are delivering on our mission.
 
Every day the Canadian Diabetes Association is
  • Creating awareness about diabetes and speaking out on issues affecting people living with diabetes.
  • Providing hope and improving the lives of people living with diabetes.
  • Supporting promising discoveries through research.
