The Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research (CFDR) offers a Tribute Program which provides an opportunity to recognize a special person or occasion while, at the same time, advancing the aims of the dietetic profession and nutrition research.
All donations of $20 or more will automatically qualify for a receipt for income tax purposes.
