Nutritionist and Dietitian Programs in Quebec - Canada

Quebec Nutritionist & Dietitian Employment Outlook

The number of Dietitians and Nutritionists in the province of Quebec has risen significantly over the past decade. Many of Canada's aging population live in this province, and the need for better, more preventative health care in Quebec has prompted a rise in demand for nutrition professionals.

Other concerns for Canada's, as well as Quebec's future involve increasing concerns about living healthier lifestyles including better eating and fitness, health care reform for more government spending, and more preventative measures to combat growing occurrences of treatable illnesses including diabetes, obesity and hypertension.

As late as 2006, nearly 95 percent of all dietetic and nutritional professionals were women. This number has begun to turn towards the inclusion of more men, as the shift of part-time to full-time workers in the industry moves more each year.

  • Administrative dietitian
  • Clinical dietitian
  • Community dietitian
  • Consultant dietitian
