College of Dietitians of Prince Edward Island

The College of Dietitians of Prince Edward Island (CDPEI) is the regulatory body for the profession of dietetics in Prince Edward Island. Established under the Regulated Health Professions Act, the College regulates the professions of Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists in the public interest by ensuring that regulated members have the proper education and training to provide professional, competent, and ethical services.  

The CDPEI is committed to the protection and safety of the public. The CDPEI is not an education institution and it does not provide dietitians services. 

We acknowledge our work is located in Mi'kma'ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi'kmaq.

Why is Regulation Important?

In order to be registered as a Dietitian or Nutritionist, an applicant must meet the requirements and standards of practice set by the College. The public can be assured that when working with a Registered Dietitian or Nutritionist, that they are working with a nutrition professional who meets the strict standards set by the College. Concerns about a Registered Dietitian or Nutritionist’s practice can be reported to the college for public protection, see the Public tab for more information. 

As the only regulatory body for Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists in PEI, any professional who is not licensed is not a Registered Dietitian nor a Nutritionist and therefore the service they provide is not regulated.  Titles CDPEI protects include: Dietitian, Nutritionist, Registered Dietitian (RD), Dietitian Candidate, Dietetic Intern.
