What is an RD?
In Canada, the designation “Registered Dietitian (RD)” is both regulated and protected. You cannot legally call yourself a Registered Dietitian unless you have completed both a four-year undergraduate degree that has been approved by the College of Dietitians and either an approved internship or Master’s program. After completing these requirements, you must register with the provincial college (i.e. College of Dietitians of Ontario if you’re working in Ontario) and complete a registration exam. On top of this, Registered Dietitians are required to participate in annual professional development. Registered Dietitians have the knowledge to translate scientific research into practical solutions. Because Registered Dietitians are a provincially regulated profession, it ensures that the advice and information they provide is sound.
