The College of Dietitians of Alberta is dedicated to the public receiving ethical, competent care from qualified nutrition professionals. As delegated by the Government of Alberta under the Health Professions Act, the College is responsible for the regulation of the dietetic profession. We regulate the practice of approximately 1,300 Registered Dietitians and Registered Nutritionists in Alberta by setting entry requirements and standards of practice for the profession and ensuring that all members meet those standards.
The Practice Statement outlines the professional services provided by Registered Dietitians and Registered Nutritionists.
The protected titles of each regulated health profession serve to inform consumers that the health care provider is regulated by, and accountable to a College to practice in accordance with the codes and standards established by the College.
The accountability of the College and its regulated members differentiate regulated and non-regulated sources of health information.
The College is accountable to both the government and the public to ensure its members practice safely. Consumers have recourse to the College if they encounter incompetent or unethical practice from a regulated member.
