NEDIC provides information, resources, referrals and support to Canadians affected by eating disorders through our toll-free helpline and instant chat. Outreach and education programming is available online and in the Greater Toronto Area, focusing on awareness and the prevention of eating disorders.
NEDIC has a non-dieting, client-centred, feminist philosophy. They promote healthy lifestyles, including appropriate, enjoyable exercise and eating. NEDIC recognizes that the determinants of health are varied, and that weight is not an effective gauge of health, so do not endorse dieting or diet centres.
NEDIC strives to make materials and services accessible to all Canadians regardless of financial status, geography and other potential barriers. Their goal is to provide information and resources so that individuals are empowered to make the decision best suited to their personal circumstance.
NEDIC’s vision is a culture that promotes and supports individuals, regardless of ascribed or inherent characteristics, physical appearance, and social status.
