Honouring our volunteers and community partners
2021 marks an important year as we recognize the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin. Despite the discovery of insulin 100 years ago, diabetes continues to be successful at taking over the country. Even after 100 years of insulin, 1 in 3 Canadians are living with or at risk of diabetes.
Every day, Diabetes Canada partners with thousands of volunteers, healthcare professionals, advocates, and community organizations to make a difference in the lives of Canadians affected by diabetes.
It’s now time to hear from you about the people and organizations that have made a special contribution to the diabetes cause. We want you to nominate them for a Diabetes Canada award by Friday, September 24, 2021. To do so, follow the instructions below to make a submission:
- Download the 2021 National Awards Nomination Form, fill it in and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org OR
- Nominators may also make submissions through the online application form.
