Awards and Recognition 

Our awards and recognition program celebrates individuals who have inspired, empowered and lent their passion to promote and elevate the dietetics profession. Every year, we recognize the extraordinary achievements and contributions of members at our annual conference.


We recognize the achievements of our members in all areas of practice from clinical, community, research, education, entrepreneurship and more.  We also acknowledge and award long standing members who have demonstrated outstanding contributions to the profession over their career.

The nomination period for 2021 is now open.  Winners will be presented with their awards at the National Conference in Montreal in May. Everyone needs a tap on the shoulder sometimes to remind them of their success. We encourage you to be a positive, encouraging and motivating colleague and submit an award nomination today.
