About Us


The Council is the governing body of the College of Dietitians of Manitoba (the College). The Council manages and conducts the activities of the College in accordance with the Act, Regulations, and By-laws.

Council is comprised of regulated members and public members. The College is required to have public members to assure transparency and accountability for the public. Public members help the College identify conflicts between professional and public interest and bring a community perspective to its decision-making and policy development.

Council members serve at least one two-year term and are involved with at least one Committee.


To ensure public protection and confidence, Council members:

  • Unite their diverse expertise to build and maintain a strong governance foundation
  • Provide management with strategic direction
  • Demonstrate leadership to the College’s shareholder and stakeholders
