Quick Facts

  • In Canada, over 2 million children have overweight or obesity; many will grow up to become adults with obesity.
  • Obesity in adulthood is associated with chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
  • Little is known about how best to help children with obesity and their families become healthier.
  • By working together, we can create a strong evidence base to support pediatric weight management.
Many of the resources will be available to non-members (though we strongly encourage you to join the Canadian Obesity Network). In some instances, you will need to login for access.

If you are involved in a healthy living program or clinic for children or youth, we want to hear from you!

We are doing a study to understand what services are available to children and youth in Canada who are living with obesity. This questionnaire is an update of a study that was conducted approximately 5 years ago.

We want to know what kinds of programs currently exist across Canada so that we can create an online list of services for children and youth living with obesity. We aim to showcase the important elements of each program and its location on a website that can be accessed by the public and healthcare providers.

We understand you are busy but we greatly value your input, and hope you also see the benefit in contributing to our knowledge about the services provided for children and youth living with obesity.
