Gift membership

Encourage and support someone suffering from diabetes with a one-year $20 gift membership. We will send them a letter on your behalf, and they will enjoy all the benefits of an Individual membership.

Circle of Friends

When you join the Circle of Friends, you will be:

  • Continuously involved in supporting Diabetes Québec in its fight against diabetes;
  • Helping Diabetes Québec fulfill its mission;
  • Helping reduce our administrative costs so we can offer even more services.

In addition to the specific benefits of your type of membership (Individual or Health Professional), as a Circle of Friends member, you will:

  • Be notified about all major news relating to new medications and the results of our political lobbying efforts;
  • Appear on the annual honour roll in our magazine Plein Soleil and on our website;
  • Receive an annual tax receipt for the amount of your donation;
  • Never be solicited or receive another membership renewal notice.

To join our Circle of Friends, simply make an automatic monthly contribution (by pre-authorized debit or credit card payment). Your monthly contribution includes your annual Diabetes Québec membership ($20 for Individual membership; $35 for a Health Professional membership). The residual amount will be considered a donation, for which you will receive a tax receipt.
