Over 300,000 Canadians and 1 million Americans (I am fact checking this) are living with Type 1 diabetes. Today, we are the only Canadian organization exclusively serving adults with Type 1 diabetes. Without the support of a community, managing Type 1 can be difficult and lonely. But it doesn’t have to be.
Our community is over 1,000 strong. Your contributions helps us reach more people with T1D. To connect them to a meaningful community. To inspire them to take charge of their own health. And to motivate them to lead healthy, active lives.

There’s nothing like being inspired by a group of amazing people that in so many ways are like you. You don’t have to worry about a low or testing, or asking for advice.Winter Slipstream Participant
There is no better first-hand learning experience for managing diabetes with friends alike. Not only a great event to learn about diabetes, but also a great and fun experience to learn about outdoor adventure.Extended Trip Participant
I was a little nervous heading out to my first Slipstream as I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect, but it was by far the best possible thing I could have ever done for myself as well as for my diabetes.Slipstream Participant
How To Make An Impact
Have an old vehicle, RV, boat, or motorcycle we can take off your hands? By donating it, CIM will directly benefit and you’ll receive a tax receipt! Towing, in many areas across the country, is free.
Do you collect Aeroplan Miles? Help us spread the CIM love to more communities by donating your Aeroplan Miles. All miles will help reduce travel costs for our charity, making CIM programming more affordable and accessible.
Give the gift of a CIM program to a friend, family member, or, hey, even a complete stranger. By donating the cost of a registration fee, you’ll help change the life of someone living with diabetes.
