The Canadian Diabetes Association became Diabetes Canada on February 13, 2017 to shed the light on the diabetes epidemic Canada is facing. It's taking a monumental toll on our health. It's time to do more —much more. Diabetes Canada will be the driving force to build awareness of the disease and its implications, which are often misunderstood. Diabetes Canada will be the national voice for millions of Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes. End Diabetes is our rallying cry to end the terrible health impacts of diabetes as well as its shame, blame, stigma and misinformation. It's also time to End Diabetes altogether with a cure.
