WE ARE SUSPENDING THE PUBLICATION OF OUR
GLUTEN-FREE FRIENDLY RESTAURANT GUIDE
We plan to replace it with a list that includes only
RESTAURANTS THAT HAVE OBTAINED GF-Verified or GF-Dedicated CERTIFICATION
From THE GLUTEN-FREE FOOD PROGRAM (GFFP)
A new list will appear in due time.
Meanwhile, all CCA Quebec Chapter members, friends and visitors to this site are encouraged
to speak to their favorite restaurants about the GFFP to encourage them to seek certification
The Canadian Celiac Association Canada-wide has partnered with
La fondation québécoise de la maladie coeliaque to launch
the Gluten-Free Food Program in 2017
This program offers standards, training and certification so that food service establishments can offer safe and reliable gluten-free food and provides food service handlers and operators with the required knowledge and best practices to responsibly meet the special dietary needs of people needing to eat safe gluten-free food.
The GFFP benefits a wide range of food service establishments of all sizes including restaurants, hotels and convention centers, healthcare and educational institutions, senior’s residences, caterers, camps, fast food outlets, cafés and bars.
A gluten-free claim is any representation in labelling or advertising that states, suggests or implies that a food is free of gluten. In order for a food to be represented as "gluten-free", it must comply with section B.24.018 of the Food and Drug Regulations (FDR). Claims to the effect that a food does not contain an ingredient or substance must be factual and not misleading. The GFFP was designed to help food service establishments meet these regulatory requirement.
The contact person to apply for this program in Quebec, is Elisa Shepherd at:
