Would you like to serve on a College Committee?

The College is currently recruiting RDs to serve as committee appointees to help regulate dietetics in the public interest and advance safe, ethical, and competent dietetic practice in Ontario. Committees are composed of Board directors and committee appointees — RDs who are not members of the Board. They support the work of the Board by developing and recommending policies and serve a legislative role by making decisions on registration, quality assurance, and conduct matters.

Committees play an important role in furthering CDO’s public protection mandate. As such, committee appointees have a fiduciary duty to CDO and are expected to act in good faith in fulfilling the mandate of the College.

Committee Appointees are required to:
  • Understand and comply with the College’s governing legislation, by-laws, and governance policies including the Board Code of Conduct.
  • Acquire and apply a working knowledge of the statutory requirements, mandate, policies and rules that apply to the committee.
  • Contribute constructively to committee deliberations and proceedings. Respect the perspective and input of other committee members.
  • Arrange their schedules to facilitate attendance at committee meetings. Prepare for meetings in advance by reading materials and coming prepared to participate meaningfully in the discussion or proceeding.
  • Raise issues in a respectful manner that encourages open discussion and contributes to an atmosphere of equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging. Support good due diligence and decision-making by voicing constructive concerns, asking for more information if necessary and exercising independent judgement.
  • Participate in required orientation and educational activities.
  • Participate in committee evaluations.
  • N.B. These posts are three-year terms.
Committee appointees are compensated and have their expenses reimbursed as per CDO’s Honoraria Policy.

How to apply:
  1. Review the eligibility requirements.
  2. Compete the training module and quiz.
  3. Sign the declaration of commitment and conflict of interest form.
  4. Submit your cover letter and resume to by April 28, 2023.
