Building on the 2015 Evidence Review (External in New Window) and the most recent evidence on food and health, Health Canada has translated the science on food and health into evidence-informed Guiding Principles and Recommendations for application in the Canadian context. Considerations for factors that influence food choices and eating behaviours underpin all of the guidance.

The summary of proposed Guiding Principles, Recommendations and Considerations (New Window) is available. Once we hear from you through this online consultation, your input will help us to finalize our recommendations and develop them into consumer messages, tools, and resources. A new suite of Canada’s Food Guide resources will be rolled out beginning in early 2018.

The portal is now closed for submissions. Thank you for your interest in this consultation with Health Canada about Canada’s Food Guide.
