All applicants to SDA must meet the same registration requirements to be issued a licence to practice as a Dietitian in Saskatchewan. The requirements include demonstrating that you meet the Canadian standards for academic and practical training. If you have been trained as a dietitian outside of Canada, SDA will assess your academic and practical training using the process described in the Substantial Equivalency Assessment Guide.
If you are an internationally educated applicant, review the Canadian Dietetic Practice Orientation and Self-Assessment Tool. It will give you a general overview of dietetic practice in Canada and help you assess your knowledge and skills against the standards required to practice dietetics in Canada.
You will be provided with a written copy of your assessment that will include individualized recommendations specific to you. If it is determined that you will require practicum experience and/or upgrading, be advised that at this point in time, no practicum experiences for internationally educated dietitians are available in Saskatchewan. Planning is currently underway to develop a bridging program, but at the current time is unavailble.
There are several steps in the process for ,registering with SDA if you are from another country. Please contact the Registrar before beginning the process of applying to SDA and/or obtaining key documents required for your application.
