November is Diabetes Awareness Month

Take action to End Diabetes

Every action makes a difference

November is Diabetes Awareness Month across the globe. This year is special: it is the 100th anniversary of the revolutionary and life-saving discovery of insulin.

The discovery of insulin 100 years ago was a game-changer. But it’s not a cure. We can’t wait another 100 years to End Diabetes. The time for action is now.

Take action and share how you're helping to End Diabetes on our digital mosaic. Click on "Add Your Photo" at the top of the mosaic to add an image and the action you took.

With your support, we can complete the mosaic and help End Diabetes for the 1 in 3 Canadians that are living with diabetes or prediabetes.

What action will you take this November?
