Medical records question

This might be a long shot, but does anyone know what happens to a person's medical records when they move out of a particular city, or how long they might be kept for? I'd like to get my records from when I was a kid growing up in Powell River.

The reason I ask is that I'm trying to find out exactly when I was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. My dad can't remember if I was four or five years old, my brother thinks I was four years old, and I think I was five years old. I think I was in kindergarten at the time, but my dad thinks it was before I started school. But even if knew my age or knew for sure I was in kindergarten, I don't know what year that was, never mind the actual day.

I need this information because I'm applying to a charity that funds insulin pumps for people who don't have private medical insurance, and they want to know my date of diagnosis. I'd also just like to know when my "diabeteversary" is.
