Federal Health Minister Tony Clement announced Friday that the guide has been translated to reach a wider audience.

"Today I'm proud to announce the translation of this guide into 10 new languages, to ensure this information reaches our diverse Canadian population," said Clement.

The guide is now available in the following languages:

  • Arabic.
  • Chinese.
  • Farsi.
  • Korean.
  • Punjabi.
  • Russian.
  • Spanish.
  • Tagalog.
  • Tamil.

"These resources are a welcome addition for health educators and will assist dietitians to better promote healthy eating to our culturally diverse populations," said Lynda Corby, director of public affairs for Dietitians of Canada, in a release.

Along with the newly translated guides is a web-based tool that allows them to be printed.
