Just for You - Educators

In addition to the popular Canada Food Guide, we publish many teaching resources and kits that can be used by educators to promote good health practices.

For a list of resources about your health and the surrounding environment, food safety and consumer product safety, consult the Consumer Information page.

Health Canada shares a joint initiative with Environment Canada called the UV Index Sun Awareness Program. This program is aimed at elementary and high school teachers to teach their students how to use the UV index as a tool to better protect themselves from the harmful UV rays from the sun. Consult our UV Index Sun Awareness Program section to learn more about the program, consult our resources and register your school.
