Gathering information on the health of Métis Albertans is essential to creating and advancing relevant programs and services for our community.

As part of our Transitions in Care research project, we are currently exploring the impact of Type 1 and 2 diabetes on the Métis community.

In collaboration with the University of Alberta, we are looking for information about living with diabetes, accessing diabetes care, and other experiences related to its symptoms and treatment from Métis Albertans.

If you are Métis, living with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, and are 18 years or older, please share your experiences by completing our survey and taking part in one-on-one interviews.

Participate in both or choose just one!

Together, we can pave the way to a healthier future for all.


This survey is now closed.

Thank you to everyone who shared their experiences about living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. We were able to gather 600 survey responses. It is input like yours that allows our Health Department to move forward in its mission of improving the health and well-being of our community.

Wondering if you’re a winner of 1 of 5 $100 pre-paid VISA cards? The draw has taken place and the recipients have been contacted directly.


If you missed the chance to share your experience of living with diabetes through the survey, we will also be offering one-on-one phone interviews starting July 2021.

When it comes to living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, these interviews will feature deeper discussions about your experiences with the health care system.

If you have completed the survey, this is your chance to share your experiences in a more personal and in-depth setting over the phone.

If you haven’t completed the survey, we encourage you to participate and share your story!

Participants will receive a $50 honorarium for their time and input.

Have questions? Want to take part in a one-one interview? To be added to our interview list, reach out to today!

This project is made possible through funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
