General Information

Welcome to Healthy Immigrant Children. This website will provide you with information on healthy immigrant children in Saskatoon, and in Canada. You will also learn about new research being done in this area, and have an exciting opportunity to become involved with this research.

Did you know that 1 of every 6 Canadians were born outside Canada? There is currently over 200 different ethnicities in Canada. In recent years, over 3000 immigrant and refugee children have come to Saskatchewan. It is important to study health and nutrition in all persons in Canada, but especially important for children because they are in a transition period where they are becoming more independent and begin to make their own choices related to food, nutrition and physical activities.
