    You can use our Find a Dietitian database to locate a dietitian working in private practice in your area. Many employee health insurance plans offer coverage for dietitian services. Please visit www.dietitians.ca/find.

    Note: Some communities have dietitians available as part of primary health care, community health or family health teams. Additionally, some provinces have dietitian contact centres where members of the public can speak with dietitians free of charge by phone or email.
