Our Financial Responsibility
At JDRF, we are part of the very community we support. This drives us to cure type 1 diabetes (T1D) and improve the lives of everyone impacted by this disease. This also makes us personal stewards of every donation made to JDRF and pushes us to make each donation bigger by attracting the expertise and additional funding from other organizations and partners. We steward every donation and maximize its impact.
Where your money goes
JDRF has a bold plan for the future of type 1 diabetes (T1D) research in Canada. As better treatments unfold and the prospect of curing this disease rests on the horizon, we remain ever-committed to directing more resources to launch and sustain innovative research and clinical trials from coast-to-coast.
Annual Impact Reports
This was a banner year filled with momentum, innovation, partnerships and incredible progress. Not only did we make exciting advances in research towards cures, but we also funded promising studies for new therapies that could prevent or delay the onset of type 1 diabetes (T1D), and reduce the risk of complications for as many as 300,000 Canadians burdened each day – and the millions more that live with T1D worldwide.
What if my child with T1D didn’t have to worry about health complications? It would be a life full of happiness and peace, without any fear.
Today is better than yesterday, and tomorrow will be better than today.

“A cure in my childs’ lifetime is the goal. We know this may not happen but we are committed to supporting this goal in any way we can. We truly feel that JDRF is our most important partner in driving medical advancements and one day a cure for T1D.. They have wrapped their arms around our family and said, ‘this is going to be crappy and really hard at times, but we are here with you and for you.’ And for that we are so very grateful.”
–Michael Arnold, Beyond Insulin Catalyst Member
My first question after my diagnosis was, “Can I still play hockey?” I was scared it might be off the table for me.
With JDRF-funded research, I’m incredibly hopeful for the future. That’s why JDRF’s mission to advance T1D research is so important to me. I want to do whatever I can to make life better for Canadians with this disease.
