Waterloo-Wellington Diabetes is hosted by Langs in Cambridge and is responsible for coordinating diabetes care throughout the region. It is separate and unique from Diabetes Education Programs and was developed through the Ontario Diabetes Strategy. It offers a central intake for all referrals to diabetes education and specialists and is a resource centre for people and families living with diabetes in the Waterloo-Wellington region. This website was developed to help individuals navigate the system and access the appropriate services and resources.

Langs, as a settler-led organization, acknowledges that it is a form of respect, wherever we live, to find out whose traditional territory we are on because every part of what is now known as Canada is someone’s Indigenous traditional territory. We acknowledge that Langs is on the Haldimand Tract, the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Chonnonton People.
We have much to learn from the First People of this land who assist in the spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental well-being of others. We are grateful for the historic and ongoing care for the land by the Indigenous peoples of this area. Langs recognizes that we are all treaty people with a responsibility to honour our relations and live with each other in kinship.
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada published a report in 2015 with 94 calls to action. These actions are broken down into action areas, such as Health, Education, Youth Programs, Professional Development Trainings, Justice and more. Recommendations made are an important blueprint for Canadian reconciliation, and specific calls to action pertain to much of the work that Langs does.
A territorial acknowledgement is a way of recognizing the everlasting presence of colonialism in Canada and to remember that the land on which we live, work, and play was and continues to be Indigenous Land. Langs recognizes that we are on an active learning journey through our IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access) work. We welcome feedback from the community, our participants, patients, partners, staff, volunteers and students.
