If you are registered as a dietitian in another province, you are deemed to meet the academic, practical training, and exam requirements for a general certificate of registration, as long as you meet the following conditions:

  1. At the time that you apply, you are still registered and a member in good standing with a dietetic regulatory body in another province in Canada.
  2. Your registration in the other province is not in a restricted category, such as student, graduate, qualifying, honorary, retired, inactive, associate, or special.

Application Process

It is strongly recommended that you maintain your registration in the other province until your application has been accepted by the College of Dietitians of Ontario. The 4-step application process can take up to 10-14 days. 

Step 1: Complete the Labour Mobility Application Form 

Step 2: Submit application fees of $185.00 with your application form.

Step 3: Verification of membership in another province

Upon receipt of your application form, the College will contact the Provincial regulatory body where you are registered to confirm that you are a member in good standing. 
What happens if I am not in good standing? 
If your certificate in another province is not in good standing or if there are terms, conditions, or limitations on your certificate of registration, the College of Dietitians of Ontario will assess the information and may either refuse registration or you may be registered with terms, conditions or limitations on your certificate of registration.

Step 4: Confirmation of registration with CDO
Once you are deemed eligible for a general certificate of registration, and have paid your registration fees, your membership will be processed.
