Open Access Canadian Database

The Canadian Inventory of Nutrition and Dietetic Associated Research (CINDAR) - an on-line database of food, nutrition and dietetic research in Canada has been discontinued and will be replaced with a new database under a new name in the summer of 2012.

CCFN Library - The Canadian Council of Food and Nutrition (CCFN) worked to advance the nutritional health and well-being of Canadians and created several documents (Watching Briefs and Fact Sheets), providing information to health care providers, researchers and consumers on such important nutrition topics as childhood obesity, trans fat, sodium and vitamin D. On July 31, 2011 CCFN operations were discontinued and the collection of nutrition documents was donated to CFDR to establish an online resource library.
