Like other health professionals, dietitians must register with the provincial regulatory body in their province in order to practise.
The regulatory body will assess your academic and practicum experience to determine your eligibility. Once fully registered, dietitians can use the protected title Registered Dietitian (RD), which assures the public of their qualifications and competence.
In most provinces, the national Canadian Dietetic Registration Examination (CDRE) is a requirement for registration once academic and practicum requirements have been met. The CDRE is administered by the provincial regulatory body. To find out how to register in your province, contact your provincial dietetic regulatory board directly.
