Children's Food & Beverage Advertising Initiative
The Canadian Children's Food and Beverage Advertising Initiative
(CAI) is an important component of our industry’s advertising self-regulatory framework. Since the program's inception in 2007, the CAI
has continued to change the landscape of food and beverage advertising to children under the age of 12. Over the past five years, the CAI
has expanded its membership, increased its scope beyond traditional media, and its Participants have reformulated many products to enhance
their nutritional profile. Learn more >

- CAI introduces new uniform nutrition criteria. The new criteria are science-based, comprehensive, and progressive and represent an important evolution in the CAI program. Read the CAI Uniform Criteria White Paper.
- ASC releases a national consumer survey probing Canadian views about making nutritional choices for their children and families. The findings show that Canadians believe their awareness of the need to make healthier food and beverage choices for their families has grown, and that there are more healthier food options available to them than there were five years ago. Check out the consumer survey results.
- ASC releases the 2013 CAI Compliance Report. Consistent with previous years, Participant compliance with their respective commitments in 2013 has been excellent. Read the 2013 Report.
