Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Canada is an affiliate of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International which started in 1970, by a group of concerned parents of children with juvenile (type 1) diabetes. They saw a need for an organization dedicated to finding a cure for this potentially deadly disease, and felt the way to find a cure for diabetes was through significant funding of diabetes research.
Since then, JDRF’s contribution to the global diabetes community is recognized and supported by affiliations in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Italy, Greece, Denmark, India, Israel, Brazil, Puerto Rico and Chile.
JDRF’s mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
Over the years, JDRF, through its many fund-raising efforts, has contributed over $900 million to research projects throughout the world.
JDRF has funded, in whole or in part, the research projects of scientists involved in every major breakthrough in diabetes research for over 25 years.
