The Nutrition Resource Centre (NRC) strengthens the capacity of health promotion and nutrition professionals, organizations and community partners
involved in healthy eating and nutrition across the province of Ontario.
Our focus is capacity building—
through information sharing, professional development and training—collaborating and providing evidence-based resources and consultations
to support a variety of health promotion and nutrition initiatives, policy development and programs throughout the province.
The NRC offers many services to our stakeholders and partners:
Information sharing: we publish a daily roundup of the top food and nutrition stories (called the “News In Brief”) that’s delivered to your inbox daily. On Wednesdays and Fridays, we also highlight NRC news and events, and on Fridays we shine the spotlight on our stakeholders’ news and upcoming events. We also send out a monthly newsletter (NRC Insider) with the latest nutrition-related headlines, research, new resources and tools to support your work, along with upcoming training opportunities, events, and more!
An Annual Forum, bringing together numerous health promotion and nutrition professionals to learn about and explore new and leading topics in the field of healthy eating and nutrition. Our speakers and delegates include dietitians and nutrition and health professionals working in various settings, community partners, organizations, academics, policy makers, students and more.
Note: our next Forum is on November 9, 2017 (details can be found here here
Regular webinars and workshops on key and emerging topics (like sustainability, changes to dietary guidelines, nutrition labelling, innovative programs and more!) relevant to our stakeholders
Housing a free online collection (called the “NRC Navigator”) of evidence-informed resources such as toolkits, position statements and research reports (to name a few) for program planning and policy developments in the areas of food, healthy eating and nutrition
Providing customized consultation and support services to organizations, governments, working groups, individuals and more to enhance projects, programs and policy development in Ontario
Working with our partners to identify information gaps, and address them by preparing evidence-based resources and tools to support healthy eating and nutrition provincially
