Diabetes Canada - Brand Matters Inc.

Diabetes Canada - Brand Matters Inc.

A leading health care charity, the Diabetes Canada lacked direction and consistency in their marketing and branding efforts throughout Canada. The problem was exacerbated by the fact that brand execution lay in the hands of many individuals who were not united under one marketing and communication vision. It was time to refresh and unify the Diabetes Canadabrand. Through the use of our exclusive Brand Differentiation Model, Brand Matters assisted Diabetes Canadain developing a new brand strategy by uncovering the long-term vision of the Association through research with key internal stakeholders. We also clarified current customer perspectives of the Diabetes Canadabrand through a rigorous review of market research. In addition, common industry marketing practices and techniques were identified through competitive analysis of leading charitable organizations. Based on internal and external analysis of the organization, Brand Matters developed a brand strategy roadmap including refined target audience and a refreshed tagline. The Diabetes Canada leadership history in medical research proved to be one of the key tenants of the renewed Diabetes Canadabrand positioning, Setting the world standard the first step in organization alignment. This was followed by the first successful development of a regionally aligned strategic marketing and communications plan led by Brand Matters. Internal stakeholders were consulted throughout the process to ensure organizational buy-in to the new brand strategy at launch, thus uniting the brand for the first time under one consistent vision. The brand was successfully rolled-out on time and on budget. Diabetes Canada continues to benefit from its successful rebrand. Continue reading >>

Diabetics Blocked From Accessing Tax Credit: Diabetes Canada

Diabetics Blocked From Accessing Tax Credit: Diabetes Canada

Diabetics Blocked From Accessing Tax Credit: Diabetes Canada Posted on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 17:27 PM Thunder Bay residents living with type 1 diabetes could be facing a financial setback. They may not be allowed to recieve a federal Disability Tax Credit of $1,500. Gabriella Simo of Diabetes Canada admits it's been a shock to many. "It's a hard hit for people who pay an inordinate amount of money for managing their diabetes," Simo notes, adding the prescription costs for some diabetics can add up to $15,000 per year. Simo says this type of tax credit helps diabetics offset those costs. She advises any people with type 1 diabetes in Thunder Bay to get political. "We've been encouraging people to contact their MP, to let their MP know about their concerns, and also if they have been denied, to appeal." In an open letter , Diabetes Canada claims many diabetes patients who have previously been able to obtain the Disability Tax Credit have been denied, even if their doctor states they meet the qualifications.

Mortality Due To Diabetes

Mortality Due To Diabetes

Key Messages Canada receives a “C” and ranks 15th out of 17 peer countries on mortality due to diabetes. Two million Canadians suffer from diabetes, a figure that is expected to increase to three million over the next decade. The prevalence of diabetes in Canada continues to increase. Putting mortality due to diabetes in context Diabetes is a global epidemic and, according to the International Diabetes Federation, “one of the most challenging health problems in the 21st century.” In 2011, diabetes accounted for about 4.6 million deaths worldwide.1 Globally, it is estimated that more than 350 million people suffer from diabetes; this number is expected to jump to over 550 million by 2030, if nothing is done.2 An estimated 280 million people worldwide have an impaired glucose tolerance—a precursor to diabetes. This number is projected to reach 398 million by 2030, or 7 per cent of the adult population.3 Diabetes has also shifted down a generation—from a disease of the elderly to one that affects those of working age or younger. According to the International Diabetes Federation, as a result of decreasing levels of physical activity and increasing obesity rates, type 2 diabetes in children has the potential to become a global public health issue.4 If you enjoyed this research, get regular updates by signing up to our monthly newsletter.

Starting The Movement To End Diabetes: Diabetes Canada

Starting The Movement To End Diabetes: Diabetes Canada

Starting the movement to End Diabetes: Diabetes Canada In late November of 2016, the Canadian Diabetes Association was looking for change: not only was a complete rebrand on the horizon, but an entire media campaign to educate Canadians on the disease was also in the works. Four months later, the CDA was reborn as Diabetes Canada, and the national End Diabetes campaign was launched. Diabetes Canada called on ecentricarts to create a scalable campaign microsite that challenged Canadians perception of diabetes sufferers and shared statistics about the life-threatening disease. A multi-agency process from the get-go, our client wanted a website that could tell a story and showcase its new branding with impact and continuity. As each agency created their own piece of the puzzle in parallel to each other, ecentricarts began to design and develop the End Diabetes user journey. By launch date, we delivered a visually striking and dynamic microsite with embedded video, flexible widgets, and custom analytics capabilities. The unified branding and disease statistics, combined with impactful copy and imagery, takes the user through a journey that: Speaks to the severity of the diabetes epidemic in Canada Drives users to sign the petition to End Diabetes once and for all Inspires users to donate to the End Diabetes cause Navigation, messaging is clear and cohesive Hi-definition video streaming functionality (via Vimeo Pro) to deliver the campaign's PSA Integrates strong post-screening Call To Action to join the End Diabetes movement, share on social, and donate Mandate toEnd Diabetesis reinforced with strong actionable items for users Continue reading >>

Diabetes Canada Closing Some Summer Camps In New Brunswick, P.e.i. And Ottawa

Diabetes Canada Closing Some Summer Camps In New Brunswick, P.e.i. And Ottawa

Diabetes Canada closing some summer camps in New Brunswick, P.E.I. and Ottawa FREDERICTON Diabetes Canada is closing its summer camps for children with Type 1 diabetes in New Brunswick and P.E.I. and moving them to Nova Scotia. "This is probably the most difficult and challenging thing I've ever had to do,"Andrew Young, vice president of programs and services, said in an interview from his office in Toronto. He saidfundraising has not kept up with increased costs. "What we saw was an opportunity to continue to offer service in a more centralized and consolidated way. It will save money for us in the long-run," he said. Camp Red Fox in Canoe Cove, P.E.I., and Camp Dia-Best at Green Hill Lake, N.B., would each host about 50 children each summer. Young said instead, they'll add a number of weeks to the schedule at Camp Lion Maxwell in Lunenburg County, N.S., to accommodate kids from elsewhere in the Maritimes, and free transportation will be offered if required. The Nova Scotia camp has traditionally had between 80 and 100 campers each summer. The decision was made in November to close another summer camp in the Ottawa area, but Young said there are no plans to close any more camps across the country. Diabetes Canada has been running camps since 1953. Parents in the Maritimes pay $375 per child for a five-day camp, but Young said the actual cost is between $1,100 and $1,300. He said the camps are just like any other summer camp with activities like swimming, crafts and drama, but also include counselling and time to address diabetes management. "It's really one of the only places where kids with Type 1 diabetes can come together and be with other kids who are in a similar situation to themselves," Young said. Type 1 diabetes, once known as juvenile diabetes, is a chronic Continue reading >>

Diabetes Canada Strikes A New Path

Diabetes Canada Strikes A New Path

The organization rebrands and launches a new platform to invigorate its messaging and mission. The Canadian Diabetes Association, the organization leading fundraising and research efforts to fight the disease, has rebranded to become Diabetes Canada as it reveals its re-energized missionto end what it calls an epidemic. According to Diabetes Canada, one in three Canadians lives with diabetes and often feel like its a struggle they have to handle alone, making them feel stigmatized and isolated from the world around them. That idea is at the core of a new campaign launching in conjunction with the rebrand. Working with Canadian singer-songwriterMary Milne, a song was created using the words from real online posts by people who have diabetes as the lyrics, most of them about the struggle and hopelessness of living with the disease. The song plays in a new PSA that will be running on TV and online, but as it goes on, the strikethrough motif in the organizations new branding is used to change the lyrics into more optimistic messages. The PSA launched Sunday during the Canadian broadcast of the Grammy Awards. The broader campaign takes the strikethrough motif to other platforms,like a full-page print ad that ran in MondaysGlobe and Mail. Juniper Park\TBWA led creative on the campaign, with Cairns Oneil handling media. The rebranding and new campaign comes with a new platform for the organization, End Diabetes. We knew what we did and the impact of what we did, but we didnt have our why, says Mapy Villaudy, chief development and marketing officer at Diabetes Canada. The ah-ha moment was that idea of ending diabetes. The strikethrough in the creative really resonated not only with the idea of striking out diabetes and ending it, but also the stigmaaround it. While the long-te Continue reading >>

History | Diabetes Canada

History | Diabetes Canada

In 1920, Dr. Frederick Banting was working as a medical practitioner based in London, Ontario, when he first conceived the idea of extracting insulin from a pancreas to treat diabetes. After several months of experimentation, and with the assistance of Charles Best, insulin was eventually purified for human use. The first successful test on a human patient with diabetes occurred on January 23, 1922. The death sentence for diabetes sufferers around the world had finally been lifted. With new hope at hand, Dr. Best realized that the growing numbers of Canadians with diabetes were going to require an organization to serve their needs. In the late 1940s, the Diabetic Association of Ontario was formed. As other provinces and territories started to form their own associations, it became clear that if the provincial branches combined their resources they could more effectively serve their membership. This culminated in the formation of the Canadian Diabetes Association in 1953. Today, the CDA is active in more than 150 Canadian communities and supports people living with diabetes through research, advocacy, education and services. We are supported in our efforts by a community-based network of volunteers, employees, health-care professionals, researchers and partners. Continue reading >>

Hundreds of Canadians with type 1 diabetes have been denied the Disability Tax Credit since May and many are at risk of being told they will have to close their Registered Disability Savings Plans (RDSP) at a potential cost of tens of thousands of dollars to each person. The medication, supplies and medical devices needed to manage type 1 diabetes can cost Canadians up to $15,000 out of pocket annuallyand if recent changes to Canada Revenue Agencys (CRAs) procedures for reviewing Disability Tax Credit applications are not reversed, many Canadians with type 1 diabetes will not have the resources required to manage their disease.
