The Top Ten Canadian Consumer Health Websites is a project that appears to be undertaken every three or four years by the Consumer Health Information Providers Interest Group (CHIPIG). Originally, the project was based on ideas put forward by Susan Murray and Dean Giustini in 2006. CHIPIG members have presented their findings about determining the top Canadian health websites at conferences, and in poster presentations. The 3rd revised edition of the Top Ten Canadian Consumer Health Websites was based on a survey sent out to Canadian health librarians in Fall 2014. The selection (vote) was based on a multiple criteria, such as credibility, currency, disclaimer, disclosure, purpose & target audience, user-friendliness & interactivity with a focus on accessibility. For more information, see the CHIPIG website.
