Welcome to 2015!

From all of us here at JDRF Canada, we’d like to wish you and your loved ones a very happy and prosperous New Year!


End the year off right and make an impact!

As 2014 comes to an end, help to make 2015 better for the 300,000 Canadians living with type 1 diabetes (T1D). By making a donation to JDRF, you will be supporting leading-edge research for all those living with T1D and its related complications.


Could Santa get Type 2?

After I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D), I used to wonder if Santa might get type 2 diabetes. Since he was a little overweight and rode around in a sled all of the time without getting much exercise, I figured it might very well happen.


You have helped us exceed our expectations, but lets not stop there!

Two weeks left– Let’s keep the momentum going, donate to JDRF today! There are only two weeks left to make an impact on the lives of 300,000 Canadians living with type 1 diabetes (T1D).
