About Health Canada

Office of Nutrition Policy and Promotion

The Office of Nutrition Policy and Promotion (ONPP) serves as a focal point and authoritative source for nutrition and healthy eating policy and promotion in Health Canada. ONPP supports the nutritional health and well-being of Canadians by collaboratively defining, promoting and implementing evidence-based nutrition policies.

The Office integrates science, policy and intervention activities as well as promotion and protection activities related to nutrition.

The Office works in three main areas:

  1. Research, Monitoring, and Evaluation
  2. Policy and Standard Setting
  3. Planning, Dissemination and Outreach

Action to improve nutrition is a shared responsibility. Recognizing this broad scope, the ONPP works closely with its partners in all areas, from policy making to implementation. Two significant partnership tables are the Federal, Provincial Territorial Group on Nutrition (FPTGN) and the Network on Healthy Eating.
