College Statement

The College of Dietitians of Alberta is committed to ensuring the safety and protection of the public. Our primary goal is to ensure all Albertans receive ethical and competent care from qualified nutrition professionals who are regulated by our organization. In line with our mandate to protect the public from harm, we acknowledge the existence of systemic racism and discrimination in Alberta, across Canada, and within our profession. We recognize the need for reflection, learning, and improvement among healthcare professionals and institutions in Alberta.

The College acknowledges its responsibility to address inequities in the access to and provision of professional services by participating in larger system-wide discussions. Registered Dietitians (RDs), as regulated health professionals, are required to adhere to a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. In turn, the College and our members are dedicated to promoting a profession that is inclusive, diverse, and equitable for the benefit of the public we serve.

The College will continuously reflect on the principles of inclusion, diversity, and equity. We regularly review our systems, processes, and professional standards and guidelines to ensure they align with these principles. In our ongoing efforts to provide resources for RDs, we will be referring to organizations that further the principles of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
