The Navigator

The Navigator is a free online repository of evidence-informed resources and tools designed to help health professionals and community organizations find their way through the complex landscape of healthy eating and nutrition.

Here you can access resources that highlight best and promising practices in order to support policy and program development. You can also submit a resource for consideration.

New resources are added regularly: the best way to stay up to date about what’s new in the Navigator  is to subscribe to our newsletter.

We want you to let us know what works and how we can improve the Navigator. Please email Erin at ecolburn@opha.on.ca with any feedback.
