Effective and meaningful public involvement is essential to enable Health Canada to fulfill its legislative mandate, deliver programs, launch new initiatives and build public trust.
Health Canada provides information and opportunities for Canadians to become meaningfully involved in our decision-making processes regarding priorities, policies and programs.
Health Canada's Office of Consumer and Public Involvement supports Canadians in understanding how decisions are made about food and nutrition products and helps make sure that their perspective is considered in the decision-making process. The Department also consults Canadians on proposed changes to regulation through the Canada Gazette Part I.
In this section, you will find information on public involvement and consultation related to food and nutrition.
