The CICH Profile evaluates and summarizes data on the health and well-being of Canadian children and youth through graphs, tables and commentaries covering a broad range of health indicators.
The Canadian Institute of Child Health (CICH) is a national non-profit organization, founded in 1977 to promote the health and well-being of all children and youth in Canada. CICH has published three hard copy editions of The Profile and is the lead coordinating organization of this on-line version.
