Diabetes is a chronic and progressive disease that impacts the lives of an increasing number of people in
Ontario. Complications of diabetes, which can have a devastating impact on the health of someone diagnosed
with the disease, can be delayed and perhaps even avoided if the person has the knowledge and support to
manage the disease. Being able to access and utilize the diabetes education and management services offered
by a qualified team of health care professionals is key to managing diabetes.
The provincial Diabetes Ontario Website is a resource for people with diabetes across the province. The
Registry of Programs offers valuable information about the diabetes education and management programs
that are funded by or through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care by providing details about the
services of each program and how they can be accessed. It is hoped that this Registry of Programs will
make it easier for people affected by diabetes to access diabetes education and management services as
close to home as possible.
Diabetes Ontario is also a professional resource for diabetes educators and other team members across the
province by facilitating access to information such as an educator
directory and employment opportunities. These unique professional development opportunities will support
diabetes educators to provide the best care possible for their clients across the province of Ontario.
This website is owned and operated by the Northern Diabetes Health Network, a publicly funded,
not-for-profit organization, working to improve the lives of people affected with diabetes.
