Senior Development Officer, Peel Region
“For the past 12 years I have had the opportunity to work in a challenging and positive work environment where the focus is on supporting vital T1D research and outreach to the T1D community.”
Regional Director, Alberta, Prairies & NWT Region
“When I started with JDRF, I did not have a type 1 personal connection. What I quickly found however is that the type 1 community is one of the most welcoming and tight knit groups I have ever had the pleasure of working with. My colleagues, the volunteers, the donors and the families have made me feel that I now have thousands of type 1 personal connections. Being able to work with and serve this amazing community is very fulfilling and an honour.”

Executive Director, Central and Eastern Canada Region
“The real power of this organization finds its source in the collaboration between staff and volunteers; a true efficient and motivating work environment. I am planning to continue to work at JDRF until there is a cure for type 1 diabetes.”

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.

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.
