Many volunteers donate their time and expertise to assist in completing their activities and projects which are essential to people affected by diabetes in Canada.

We try to recognize the tremendous contribution of our volunteers, but we do realize that we are not informed about the work of every volunteer. A heartfelt thank-you to all volunteers for their generosity.
