Dietitian vs Nutritionist

Dietitians are health care professionals who have completed a Bachelor's degree in food and nutrition from an accredited university, plus a 1 year internship.  This means that Dietitians have the expertise to address complex medical issues and provide reliable nutrition advice that you can trust.  


Dietitians are committed to evidence-based practice and are required by law to maintain membership with provincial regulating bodies.  In British Columbia, this regulating body is the College of Dietitians of BC (CDBC).  In order to maintain membership with the CDBC, Dietitians must be able to show that they are staying up to date with the latest nutrition information.


The title ‘Dietitian’ is protected by law, just like physician, nurse and pharmacist. When you use the services of a Dietitian or Registered Dietitian (RD), you can be sure that you are receiving nutrition advice from a qualified professional.  

To the contrary, the title "Nutritionist" is not a protected title in BC, which means anyone can use it.  ​​
