Diabetes Canada is proud to be a leading supporter of diabetes research in Canada. Since 1975 and the establishment of the Charles H. Best Research Fund, Diabetes Canada has funded thousands of Canada’s most renowned scientists, scholars, and clinicians in their quest for new and innovative developments in the prevention, treatment, and management of diabetes.

Each year, the National Research Council (NRC) of Diabetes Canada—based on the recommendations of our five peer review committees—makes final funding decisions for both Operating Grant and Personnel Award applications.

Diabetes Canada Chair in Diabetes Management

We are collaborating to advance the management of diabetes in Canada.

Sara & Sophie need your help.

Sara has lived with diabetes since she was ten and in 2016, her worst nightmare came true: her daughter Sophie was diagnosed with diabetes. This meant endless needles, blood sugar checks and constant worry. More than anything, Sara wants to End Diabetes so that Sophie can live to see a cure.

Alone, we won’t accomplish much. But together, we could give Sophie and millions of others a cure.

Your support today can help fund a cure and END DIABETES NOW.
