This People’s Report is a summary of the key findings of a research project called “Reducing
the Burden of Diabetes on First Nations People in Ontario: Using Population level data to
inform policy and practice”, that Chiefs of Ontario worked on with researchers at ICES, Queen’s
University, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, and Laurentian University. We worked
with a regional diabetes patient advisory group as well as with five First Nations communities
across Ontario. We used health services data, the First Nations Regional Health Survey, and
interviews with First Nation Community members with diabetes and health care providers.
