Tools and Information
The Ontario Government has partnered with the College of Dietitians of Ontario to create a Career Map for internationally trained dietitians. The Career Map explains in detail every step of the registration process including language requirements, industry trends, labour market conditions, the credential assessment process, licensing fees and other important information about your specific profession or trade.
Entry to practice requirements: You can find information on how you can practise as a regulated dietitian in Ontario on HealthForceOntario.
Bridge training programs: If you are qualified in your profession but new to Ontario, you may benefit from a bridging program. Bridging programs help qualified immigrants move more quickly into their professions without duplicating what they have already learned.
