Dietitians are in demand; with the increased recognition of the relationship between good eating habits and disease prevention, dietitians have assumed a new and important role in promoting and contributing to the health and well-being of all Canadians.

Today’s dietitians are also entrepreneurs. Dietitians counsel individuals and groups through their own private practices; assist the food industry with consumer research, product development and marketing; write cookbooks and magazine or newspaper columns showing consumers how to eat healthy without sacrificing taste, and tackle the issue of food security while working at food banks and community agencies.
