2019-2020 Late Renewal Available Online April 1-May 31, 2019 

Anyone who did not renew registration by the March 31, 2019 deadline ceases to be registered with the CDBC and may not practice dietetics in BC as of April 1, 2019.

CDBC registrants must complete the annual online registration renewal and all the requirements requirements (e.g., Jurisprudence exam and Continuing Competence Program), including full payment of renewal fees, by March 31, 2019, midnight. As per CDBC bylaws, section 49 (1) , renewing registration after the deadline incurs a "late" registration fee of $300.00.

IMPORTANT: When signing in to your account, you will see a current application in progress (this is the late renewal application that has been created for you). You will also notice the option to ‘Reinstate’. Please do not click on reinstate, instead continue with the already created renewal application.

Registrants renewing Restricted Activities for 2019-20 registration period:

Registrants who are currently practicing Restricted Activities (RAs) and plan to renew them for the 2019-20 year, are able to do so as part of the late online registration renewal process. Please have your form and/or certificates ready for upload prior to proceeding to payment. Scroll down to Online Services and click on “Certificate to Practice Restricted Activities” to upload your form(s). Select the Restricted Activities you need to register with and proceed to the payment page.

If you do not intend to renew your registration with the CDBC, you can resign from the College in good standing. For more information, read here.


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!
