What is the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist?
The titles “dietitian” or “Registered Dietitian” are protected by law. This means that only someone who has met specific educational and professional requirements is legally allowed to use these titles, or the initials, RD.
All Registered Dietitians in Manitoba are members of the College of Dietitians of Manitoba. As a member of the College, a Registered Dietitian must practice according to set standards and laws that protect the public, just like you would expect from doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other health professionals.
The terms “nutritionist” or “registered nutritionist” are NOT protected terms in Manitoba. This means that anybody can call themselves a nutritionist and there are not standards for the quality of care.Back to Team
