Once a year, a special day is dedicated to dietitians across Canada. It celebrates dietitians as regulated health care professionals, committed to using their specialized knowledge and skills to translate the science of nutrition into terms everyone can understand to unlock food’s potential and support healthy living for all Canadians.
March 17, 2021 will mark the twelfth year of celebrating Dietitians Day in Canada, always held the third Wednesday in March. It will shine the spotlight on the profession and remind us that dietitians are the trusted choice for reliable life-changing food and nutrition advice.
Dietitians Day helps raise the profile of all dietitians and encourages and attracts others to this profession to help shape the future of eating and healthy living for all Canadians.
