WHO WE ARE?

Internationally Educated Dietitians Network of Canada (IEDNC) is an organization of Internationally Trained Dietitians, Registered Dietitians, Dietitian students in Canada, and abroad.

According to The International Confederation of Dietetic Associations (ICDA), Dietitian-Nutritionist is a “A professional who applies the science of food and nutrition to promote health, prevent and treat disease to optimize the health of individuals, groups, communities, and populations.” The nationally recognized Professional titles in various countries are “dietitian” or “Nutritionist” but in Canada, the title is “ Registered Dietitian” which is regulated.
