This four-year program, unique in Ontario, is offered in French for bilingual students and includes hands-on learning through integrated practicum placements. It provides a stimulating learning environment with a team of dynamic professors actively engaged in research. The program deals with the multiple challenges related to food and nutrition that individuals and societies face today, such as malnutrition here and around the world; the increased incidence of obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure; aging populations; the risk of food contamination; and the complex nature of food services management. This dietetic education program is an accredited program recognized by the Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice (PDEP) and prepare students for eligibility for registration with a provincial dietetic regulatory body. Upon receiving their degree, graduates are eligible to write the Canadian Dietetic Registration Examination (CDRE). 

Vision

The Honours Bachelor in Nutrition Sciences is designed to provide cutting-edge education that prepares students for the important professional role they will play in maintaining the health and well-being of individuals over a whole lifetime. Based on the mastery of sound theoretical knowledge and practice competencies, students are also destined to become leaders and decision-makers in their field. With its innovative approach, its interprofessional setting and the strong research caliber of its professors, the Honours Bachelor in Nutrition Sciences aims to educate professionals who will not only make a powerful contribution to the body of knowledge in nutrition sciences, but also highlight the critical impact that nutrition has on the health of individuals and populations. 

Mission

Our mission is to provide French-language education that enables bilingual graduates to meet the requirements of the Canadian Dietetic Registration Examination. To accomplish this, we provide students relevant practical training in stimulating settings and promote the sharing of cutting-edge knowledge in the field. We also contribute to improving professional practice standards with the scholarly work conducted by our faculty. Finally, we foster interprofessional cooperation to expand core knowledge in health care and we play a direct role in promoting health and nutrition sciences through partnerships in teaching, research and clinical practice both across Canada and abroad.

NOTE: While courses are offered only in French, placements may take place in French, English or bilingual settings. Students must therefore have a strong command of English and French, both spoken and written.
