This session will present a new user-friendly manual for assessing local food environments developed by Health Canada, in collaboration with the Federal, Provincial and Territorial Group on Nutrition. The manual is intended to be a comprehensive and consistent tool that can be used and adapted in any community across Canada to assess the quality of the community food environment with respect to enabling healthy choices. The manual is currently being tested in four Canadian communities and the findings will inform refinement of the tool. The session will provide a practical overview of the manual and how it can be used.
