Use of Title
Under the Dietetics Act, a member who has resigned or no longer holds a Certificate of Registration is prohibited from using the title "dietitian", a variation or abbreviation or an equivalent in another language and is prohibited from holding himself or herself out as a person who is qualified to practice in Ontario as a dietitian or in a specialty of dietetics. A breach of the Act could result in a fine of up to $25,000 for a first offence and $50,000 for a subsequent offence.
Annual Fee Refunds
Refunds are granted on a prorated basis for members resigning by April 30th. No refunds are granted if you resign after April 30th.
Returning to the College
If a member resigns and wishes at a later point to be reinstated, the member must apply and meet the registration requirements in place at the time of the re-application. The requirements may include:
- demonstration of currency of competence
- successful completion of any upgrading program as required, and successful completion of the Canadian Dietetic Registration Examination.
