First Nations and Diabetes in Ontario

Green ME, Jones CR, Walker JD, Shah BR, Jacklin K, Slater M, Frymire E, editors. November 2019.

This report is the result of a collaborative project between the Chiefs of Ontario and ICES and their academic partners. It is a response to the calls to action contained in the 2015 report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

Honouring principles established to observe First Nations data sovereignty and employing approaches from community-engaged participatory research, the report examines the prevalence and incidence of diabetes, as well as health outcomes and service utilization of people with diabetes, comparing First Nations people living in and outside of First Nations communities with other people in Ontario between 1995/96 and 2014/15.

Collaborative report shows need for wholistic diabetes prevention care in Ontario First Nations communities, particularly for children and youth
