Advocacy reports are expert-created reviews of issues affecting Canadians with diabetes, which are used to inform and educate governments, decision-makers, the media, the general public, and people like you who live with diabetes.
Advocacy reports are one of the most important elements of Diabetes Canada's advocacy strategy.
Our advocacy reports cover a range of topics related to the cost of living with diabetes, health-care policy and government programs. The goal of each report is to spark changes that improve the lives of Canadians living with diabetes.
