The specific objectives of this funding opportunity are to:

  • Establish an interdisciplinary, inter-jurisdictional, and inter-sectoral National Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) Screening Research Consortium that aims to investigate the feasibility of T1D screening in the general population in Canada, building on the successes and experiences from other countries.
  • Develop, implement, and evaluate research relevant to T1D screening that generates evidence to increase opportunities to identify pre-symptomatic T1D in the Canadian pediatric population, reduce the incidence of DKA at diagnosis, and improve outcomes for children and youth diagnosed with T1D, and their families.
  • Support research that involves meaningful engagement with diverse stakeholders and PWLE, with particular attention to health disparities, Canada’s diverse ethnocultural population and Indigenous Peoples’ health and well-being.
  • Build Canadian research capacity in the area of T1D screening.
  • Maximize research impact and knowledge mobilization to inform health policy, decision making and planning; this includes the ethical, economic, legal and social aspects of T1D screening in the general population.
