Supporting Canadians' Health through
Applied Dietetic and Nutrition Research













Together Advancing Nutrition

The Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research (CFDR) is a registered charitable foundation that provides grants for research in dietetics and nutrition. This research supports quality advice, programs, resources and service delivery—based on credible scientific evidence—that ultimately enhances the health of Canadians. Our work is made possible through the support of corporations, dietitians, individuals and other organizations who share our concern for the nutritional wellbeing of others.
