    I recently visited the beautiful garden and tribute. I noticed that there were commemorative bricks in the pathway. Is this something I can purchase to donate in behalf of my son with type 1?

      Good morning. Yes you can. I will send you an email about the program which will include sizes, costs, and content instructions. Our goal is to reach 150 to celebrate Canada150 and unveil them in the Global Garden on November 14th, World Diabetes Day and Sir Frederick’s birthday.

    I have an oil painting signed by Frederick Banting but I have no documentation for it. How does one go about this? Thanx

      Good evening. Not sure what you mean. Are you looking to donate the wobrk or trying to determine it’s validity? Both? Please contact our curator at If you could include a photo of the front and back, that would be helpful.

    Good day, I’m wondering if you know of any support groups in London for parents of Type 1 kids?

    • bantinghouse

      Hi Christine,

      If you call 1-800-BANTING, the number of the Canadian Diabetes Association, they may be able to direct you to a support group. Hope this helps!

    Just bought a letter signed by both Banting and Best with an old photo of their lab.
    It was to Al Gilfert, thanking him?

      Hi Michael,

      It sounds like you have found a great piece of history!

      If you could email a copy of the letter to, we would love to see a copy of it!

    years ago you had a wonderful foot cream for cracked heels in your gift shop… it still available?

    • bantinghouse

      Hi Deborah. Unfortunately, the store the Canadian Diabetes Association used to run has closed and the Museum Gift Shop doesn’t carry those product.

    Can you confirm which University of Toronto building was the one where insulin was discovered?
