Diabetes Education Centres provide education, support, and assistance to people who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, type 1, type 2, or gestational diabetes. We offer services to people of all ages in both outpatient and inpatient settings.
It is our goal as a program to help people with diabetes self-manage their condition and live a balanced and health life.

Wait times for appointments vary by location and urgency. We make every effort to see people as quickly as possible. For urgent concerns, please contact your physician. For quick questions, drop in services are available at some locations.
Please note, when you book an appointment the time is set aside for you and we expect that you will attend. If you choose not to come, or are unable to make it, please let us know 24 hours in advance. The appointment time can then be used for another person.
