August 2014: Revised format for WHO growth charts for Canada (March 2014)

The format of the WHO Growth Charts for Canada was revised in March 2014 to address several concerns, including the choice of percentile range lines, and the omission of weight for age curves over 10 years of age. These charts are recommended by the Canadian Paediatric Society, Canadian Pediatric Endocrine Group, College of Family Physicians of Canada, Community Health Nurses of Canada and Dietitians of Canada.

A BMI Calculator and BMI Tables for Children 2-19 years are available to help you determine the BMI in children 2 years of age and over.
