Make Obesity Canada Your Knowledge Translation & Exchange Partner

Obesity Canada’s goal is to accelerate the dissemination of new information to support evidence-based decision making and improve the prevention and treatment of obesity.

We have developed tools and resources to help our members share knowledge, develop skills, build working relationships and create partnerships with the goal of developing effective system- and client-level solutions to prevent, manage and treat obesity. We support both integrated and end-of grant knowledge translation as specified in CIHR’s knowledge translation models.

Obesity Canada is the only national organization exclusively dedicated to the prevention and control of obesity, and is widely recognized by Canadian health professionals, decision makers and industry as a ‘one-stop source’ for credible, reliable and unbiased obesity expertise.
