We rely on a network of passionate volunteer advocates to help Canada’s decision-makers understand the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) and what actions need to be taken to improve the lives of those living with this disease.

JDRF advocates put T1D on the government agenda by actively participating in the legislative decision-making process. They volunteer across Canada in support of ongoing efforts to give voice to the most pressing issues facing the T1D community. We invite you to donate your time and voice.

There are two ways you can get involved:

By volunteering to be an advocate, you will have the opportunity to be a part of meetings with elected officials, events and lobby days hosted by JDRF to raise awareness about T1D.

Volunteer as an Advocate

You can advocate on behalf of JDRF and the T1D Community by using your voice through online actions. We will also keep you up to date on news related to our advocacy efforts and how you can further get involved.
