Advocate With Us

The year 2020 showed the significant impact Covid-19 had on many people managing overweight and obesity whereby this population was more vulnerable to Covid-19 complications.

New Canadian Clinical Practice Guidelines provided evidence-based recommendations on how to advance obesity management. Despite the science, there are no publicly reimbursed obesity treatments in Canada and the majority of private insurance companies misrepresent obesity as a lifestyle problem that can be cured by diet and exercise. Canada requires an obesity strategy that recognizes obesity as the disease it is and prioritizes the related supports and tools needed for successful obesity care.
