Welcome to Baby-Friendly Initiative Ontario

The Provincial Authority for The Baby-Friendly Initiative

Formerly the Ontario Breastfeeding Committee.

Baby-Friendly Initiative Ontario is a multidisciplinary committee consisting of health care professionals, service providers and consumers within Ontario who are interested in protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding by implementation of the WHO/UNICEF Baby- Friendly Initiative. Our vision is that all eligible facilities in Ontario receive the Baby Friendly Initiative designation and all supporting facilities practice according to the Baby-Friendly Initiative (BFI) standards.
