The Canadian Diabetes Association became Diabetes Canada on February 13, 2017 to shed the light on the diabetes epidemic Canada is facing. Diabetes is taking a monumental toll on our health and our health care system. Today in Nova Scotia alone there are over 315,000 people living with diabetes and prediabetes and it's taking a toll the health of our community. The implications of diabetes are often misunderstood, and people living with diabetes often face discrimination, blame and stigma. Diabetes Canada is here to provide a strong voice on behalf of everyone living with diabetes and to advocate for the best access to health care that will help people live healthy lives and avoid devastating complications while we continue to fund research toward a cure.
