We are the experts in nutrition! A registered dietitian is a regulated health care professional and is a protected title across Canada. To become a dietitian, you must complete a 4-year undergraduate degree from an approved University, a 1-year internship and pass a national exam. Dietitian’s are regulated by a provincial body and must follow a code of ethics; meaning the consumer can rest assured that a dietitian’s advice is reliable, credible, and valid. Dietitians base their advice on the latest science and research in combination with clinical judgement to ensure you’re being provided the best possible service!
In British Columbia, “nutritionist” is not a protected title and their practice is not regulated. Nutritionists are not held responsible to a regulated college, cannot work in hospitals and are not clinically trained to treat patients with diseases or chronic conditions. This is why it’s important to check the training and education before choosing your nutrition professional.
