WHO Growth Charts for Canada - Updated March 2014

The WHO Growth Charts for Canada are recommended for monitoring and assessment of growth of Canadian infants and Children in primary care and public health by the Canadian Paediatric Society, Canadian Pediatric Endocrine Group, College of Family Physicians of Canada, Community Health Nurses of Canada and Dietitians of Canada. The charts were redesigned in March 2014 to address concerns of practitioners who had been using the charts since they were first released in 2010. The 2014 growth charts remain aligned with the recommendations in the 2010 collaborative statement. A summary of the design changes is available. Resources that support implementation of the WHO Growth Charts for Canada will be updated as soon as possible to reflect the redesigned charts.
