National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC)

SPARK Program

National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC)provides information, resources, referrals and support to Canadians affected by eating disorders.

The SPARK program serves post-secondary employees and students across Canada. NEDIC operates Canada’s only national toll-free helpline focusing on supporting individuals affected by eating disorders. In December 2017, the organization launched an online instant chat platform to make our helpline services more accessible. This initiative aims to bring awareness of our services to post-secondary students across Canada and facilitate access to support for students experiencing these serious concerns. In addition, NEDIC’s instant chat service may be an accessible option to help both post-secondary students and campus services better manage their current challenges of long wait times and insufficient resources.
