Difference between a Nutritionist and Registered Dietitian
- The title “Registered Dietitian”, “Professional Dietitian”, and “Dietitian” are protected by law — through provincial legislation — so that only qualified practitioners who have met education qualifications can use that title.
- Dietitians are members of a provincially regulated profession that has Public Protection as their mandate. Dietitians are held accountable for their conduct and the care they provide. In Ontario, Dietitians are regulated by the College of Dietitians of Ontario.
- Registered Dietitians (RDs) in Ontario are uniquely trained food and nutrition experts. They are the recognized experts in translating scientific, medical and nutrition information into practical individualized therapeutic diets, healthy meal plans for people, and building the capacity of individuals and communities to access nutrition for health and wellbeing.
- The term Nutritionist is not protected by law in all provinces so people with different levels of training and knowledge can all themselves a “Nutritionist”. The title “Nutritionist” is protected for dietitians in some provinces and dietitians do use the title “Nutritionists”. As the term “Nutritionist’ is not a protected title in some provinces, you should contact your provincial regulatory body to ensure that you are receiving services from a dietitian.
