If you are a dietitian who is currently licensed with a dietetic regulatory body in another Canadian province and want to become licensed in Saskatchewan, you will need to fill out the SDA application form and indicate which jurisdiction you are currently licensed in. This will authorize SDA to contact that regulatory body and obtain copies of your transcripts, verification of completion of practicum, CDRE results, name change documents, as well as verify that you are a member in good standing. In addition to submitting the application form and paying the fees, you are required to submit a current (within six months) police information check. Please allow 7-10 days for the paperwork to be completed. Do not resign from the dietetic regulatory body where you are currently licensed until you have received notification from SDA that you have been accepted as a member.
To determine if you qualify for the temporary or courtesy register, please contact the Registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Temporary Licence (3 months or less)
If you are registered with another Canadian Dietetic Regulatory Body and only require SDA licensure for a short period of time, you may be eligible for a temporary licence. A Temporary Licence is available from SDA but is limited to dietitians in good standing with another Canadian dietetic regulatory body who require registration with SDA for a short period of time (not exceeding three months) for a specified purpose approved by the Registrar.
