Legislation & By-Laws

For reasons of public protection, the Regulated Health Professions Act and other laws specify the obligations of dietitians. For those who are unaware of their legal and professional responsibilities, failure to comply could mean a course of remedial action by the College, legal action or potential fines. Dietitians need to learn and understand how the laws apply to their professional practice. For details see the website section under Jurisprudence & Professional Practice Resources.
