Code of Ethics
The Code of Ethics (the Code) is a set of principles of professional conduct that establish the requirements and expectations for Dietitians in fulfilling duties to their clients, to the profession, to their employer and to their colleagues.
The Code identifies the basic moral and ethical commitments of dietetics and serves as a source of education and reflection on the profession. For Dietitians, the Code provides direction for ethical practice, and should serve to all members as a basis for self-evaluation.
For the public, the Code provides public identification of the profession’s ethical expectations of its members.
Should an allegation be made against a member of the College of Dietitians of Manitoba (the College), the College’s Complaints Committee will assess the conduct of the member in relationship to the standards and Code of Ethics established by the College. The onus is on the individual Dietitian to maintain a working knowledge of, and comply with, the legislation and policies stated by the College.
