About

Diabetes Canada is the registered national charity that is making the invisible epidemic of diabetes visible and urgent. Eleven million Canadians have diabetes or prediabetes. Every three minutes, another Canadian is diagnosed with diabetes. Now is the time to End Diabetes – its health impacts, as well as the blame, shame and misinformation associated with it.
