Our Mission is to strengthen the capacity of health promotion professionals and community partners involved in healthy eating and nutrition across the health continuum. 

Through networking and collaboration, the NRC is fostering knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE) and building a centre of excellence in evidence-based resources and tools that will support program and policy development throughout Ontario.

The Nutrition Resource Centre (NRC) has operated under the Ontario Public Health Association (OPHA) since 1999.
