Volunteers have been an important part of the Diabetes Canada family since day one. We're deeply grateful for our volunteers' generosity and support. Now that 11 million Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes today, we need volunteers like you more than ever.
Volunteering with Diabetes Canada gives you the chance to contribute to the lives of people affected by diabetes—perhaps those close to you, in your community, or even across the country. You'll join a team of committed, generous people who are making a difference.
We offer a variety of rewarding opportunities that are matched to your skills, interests and availability. They range from helping out in a local office and at local events, fundraising and being part of a committee, to speaking to government officials, and giving presentations and talks to community groups.
Ready to join our team? We look forward to meeting you!
Featured volunteer story
“Having two kids with type 1 diabetes and a brother who died at [the age of] 41 due to diabetes-related complications encourages me to do something to help find a cure. I strongly believe that the only way to win the fight is to be actively involved in Diabetes Canada.”
