  1. Is there a possibility that prints of “ painting the lab” will be for sale in the near future? Thank you!

    1. Unfortunately, we were not the successful bidder at the auction. We would love the opportunity to create reproductions, but we do not know who the successful bidder was. Follow us here, on Twitter (@BantingHouse) and Facebook (bantinghousenhs) for the latest details. Thanks for your interest.

  2. Ich möchte einen Blauen Kreis für Diabetes kaufen. Leider geht das im Shop nicht. Bitte schreiben Sie mir wie ich diesen Blue Cirkle kaufen kann.

    1. I am sorry I missed this request. If you are interested in purchasing for next year, we do accept VISA/Mastercard (not debit card). Fee is $4.50 CDN plus shipping. Purchasers send two emails to (1 with card number / 1 with expiry date) and then we process. Again, my apologies for not replying in time for World Diabetes Month 2018.

  3. Thank you for those kind words! We are glad you enjoyed your experience at Banting House and look forward to hosting you again.

  4. Our family visited & experienced the hope that IS Banting House yesterday! It was one of the top 10 most beautiful days of my whole life!! Can you please tell me where I may be able to purchase a copy of the painting by Sir Frederick Banting entitled, “Georgian Bay?” It absolutely spoke to my heart in a way I cannot put into words. Loved reading the letters that other folks with type 1 diabetes have shared at Banting House. Type 1 has impacted our whole family & so to have an afternoon of hope & gratitude yesterday was a joy of the heart. A million thanks. Saundie Rowat & Family 🙂 🙂 :):) 🙂
