Is there a difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist?

Sometimes yes, sometimes no! Some dietitians have a job  title that includes nutritionist such as community nutritionist.  To be  sure you are accessing the most qualified nutrition professional, look  for the initials RD or PDt (DtP in French) after the dietitian's name or ask - are you a dietitian? Dietitian is a protected title across Canada, just like physician, nurse and pharmacist.  

What does a dietitian do?

Dietitians translate the science of nutrition into terms you can  understand. They unlock food’s potential and support healthy living for  their patients, clients, and communities.  A dietitian would not just  hand you a diet or a list of foods not to eat and send you on your way  or promote or sell you unnecessary food or supplements. Dietitians look  beyond fads and gimmicks to deliver reliable, life-changing advice  tailored to your objectives as well as personal needs and challenges.
