The Top Ten Canadian Consumer Health Websites is a project undertaken by the Consumer Health Information Providers Interest Group (CHIPIG) in 2010, and was based on a survey sent to CHLA/ABSC members. The list was presented as a poster presentation at the 2010 CHLA/ABSC (Canada) conference in Kingston, Ontario.
CHIPIG said that "no clear favourite" emerged from the 2010 survey but the top three sites tied at 10 votes each. Each of the sites submitted had a different focus and fell into broad categories such as women, children, disease-specific and health promotion. The group opted to compare websites in each category and select those that stood out. Because their choices were the best in different subject areas, they felt they couldn’t rank them from one to ten. Instead the list is presented alphabetically:
