From Ontario, Canada:

Can people with type 1 diabetes get a driver's license?


Absolutely, but the diabetes usually needs to be declared on the driver's license application.


[Editor's comment: As published on the Canadian Diabetes Association website:

Most provinces and territories require that a licensed driver immediately report any medical condition that may affect one's ability to operate a motor vehicle safely. Diabetes is one of those conditions.
