What is Diabetes Action Canada?

Diabetes Action Canada is a pan-Canadian research organization that was launched in 2016. We focus on bringing patients, their caregivers and researchers together to identify the health concerns of those living with diabetes and to co-create research projects that address these concerns.

Mission and Vision

Our Mission is to co-design, implement and evaluate scalable, equitable models of health and social care services for all persons with type 1 (T1D) and type 2 (T2D) diabetes.


Our partners share in our mission to transform the health outcomes of people with diabetes and its related complications. Industry stakeholders have the opportunity to partner with Diabetes Action Canada, the first and only nation-wide collaborative network focused on the prevention of diabetes complications, and play an active role in achieving our goals.
