Registered dietitians are licensed by the Ordre professionnel des diététistes du Québec (OPDQ) and are members of Dietitians of Canada. Receipts are provided for medical insurance and income tax purposes.

The following services include the use of an online food journal, with the services of the dietitian who will be able to access your food journal and provide feedback during the appointment.
