Canadian Diabetes Association

In the late 1940s, the Diabetic Association of Ontario was formed. As other provinces and territories started to form their own associations, it became clear that if the provincial branches combined their resources they could more effectively serve their membership. This culminated in the formation of the Canadian Diabetes Association  in 1953.
