In 1974, four years after JDRF was founded in the United States, a group of parents determined to find a cure for their children living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) came together and began JDRF Canada, launching the largest funder and advocate for T1D research in Canada.
Although the focus was and remains finding cures for type 1 diabetes; since then, JDRF has helped fund research that has led to innovation and evolution of treatments that improve the quality of life for people living with T1D.
Vision: A world without T1D
Mission: Improving lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications
Working Toward a World Without T1D
JDRF works every day to change the reality of this disease for millions of people—and to prevent anyone else from ever knowing it—by funding research, advocating for government support of research and new therapies, ensuring new therapies come to market and connecting and engaging the T1D community.
We must keep up the pace of funding so progress doesn’t slow or stop entirely, and we can turn type one into type none.
