Together the Canadian Celiac Association and Dietitians of Canada have recently revised the gluten free diet handout in English and French. While there are not major changes there are some changes reflecting new labeling regulations for some ingredients added to products.
Many restaurants are not following the requirements set forth by Health Canada and enforced by MAPAQ (in Quebec). Therefore if you’ve become ill at a restaurant that has made a GF claim, you are encouraged to file a complaint contact with MAPAQ at: 1 800 463-5023
Details can be found on the Restaurants Making a GF Claim page.

All other recalls (Class II and III), and food products that are sold exclusively to restaurants, are posted on the CFIA’s Food Recall Report. Email notifications are also available for all allergen recalls.
