SFBLF welcomes new partners interested in mutually beneficial collaboration and initiatives. To explore opportunities, please contact us info@bantinglegacy.ca

We are grateful for our friends

In addition to the support received from our Advisory Board of volunteer executives and community representatives and all our donors, we benefit from the experience, expert advice and ideas of our partners and helpers.

Rescuing, restoring and enhancing the historic Banting farmstead would have been more protracted and difficult without the creative and flexible support of our trades team, service providers and many community volunteers.

The evolution of our programs and educational content benefit from the ideas, professional advice and candid critique of our collaborative partners.

All strive to help us pursue our mission to Fight Diabetes and Preserve the Legacy of Sir Frederick Banting.

We are very grateful for the commitment exhibited by this dedicated group of friends.
