2020 Jurisprudence Examination Requirement

The Jurisprudence Guide and Examination for Dietitians in BC is a quality assurance initiative that ensures all registrants are familiar with the legal, ethical, and professional aspects of dietetic practice in British Columbia.

Full registrants are required to re-write the JED every five years, as per CDBC Bylaws’ subsection 47(7). Registrants completing their five years cycle are due to complete the JED prior to March 31, 2020. A reminder has been sent to these registrants as well as Temporary Registrants.

Notice of Bylaw Amendments

On March 1, 2019, the Board of the College of Dietitians of BC (CDBC) approved bylaw amendments to modify Restricted Activity oversight. The proposed amendments will enable the College to operate registration more efficiently, align restricted activity oversight and examination process with dietetic regulatory bodies nationally and maintain accountability for public safety through an annual continuing competence program. Feedback or comments on these proposed changes may be submitted to the College and the Ministry of Health no later than 5:00 pm on October 30, 2019. Click here for more information.

Strategic Plan 2018-2021

The CDBC is pleased and proud to present the new Strategic Plan 2018-2021, approved by the Board on March 12, 2018.

The Board began work on the College's 2018-2021 strategic planning process at its October 2017 meeting. At this meeting, the Board reviewed results of surveys and an environmental scan conducted during the summer.
Over the next few months, goals and strategies were developed to determine how the College can meet its mandate, at this current stage of the organization. The Board approved the Plan after reviewing priorities and resources available for the College. 
Strategic Planning is an important process to provide common direction and engagement of the key partners of the College. We hope we can count on your continuous collaboration and commitment to reach these goals!
