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.

Consider choosing CFDR this year for a donation

Do you want to give back and support research in your field of practice? The Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research (CFDR) is calling on dietitians, researchers and those passionate about food and nutrition to support the development of new evidence-based knowledge.

Giving Tuesday is an annual global movement for giving, volunteering, and amplifying small acts of kindness for communities and non-profit organizations. If you are considering donating to a cause this year, consider choosing CFDR. This profession is stronger when we work together and remain committed to helping practice-based research thrive. Donate Here.

Over the past 30 years, CFDR has invested over $2.0 million in research undertaken by Canadian dietitians with 128 projects completed or underway. Read about this year's 2021 Grant Awards and also check out the research abstracts from the DC conference.
