Education is essential in the management of diabetes, and people living with diabetes are encouraged to take an active role in the day-to-day management of their own health care. Self-management, however, requires certain knowledge and skills. Diabetes Education Programs and Diabetes Educators provide much of the information, knowledge and skills needed to manage well living with diabetes. People living with diabetes are encouraged to attend group or one-on-one sessions at the onset of their illness, during transitions or changes (i.e. going on new medications) or anytime to refresh their knowledge about how best to self-manage and get additional support.

Community-based diabetes education programs are offered in group or one-on-one sessions and can be accessed via self-referral. Community-based programs offer support for: pre-diabetes, Type 2 and Type 1 (adult) diabetes, and insulin starts.
