Abstract: 

This report highlights the dramatic increase in the prevalence of diabetes in Canada over the last decade and provides a sobering view of the outlook for the next decade. Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects not only the health of people living with diabetes, but also imposes significant direct and indirect costs on them and on society as a whole. These costs have escalated sharply over the last decade and are expected to continue their rapid ascent for the foreseeable future.
