College of DIETITIANS of Ontario


This practice is of interest to regulators seeking ways to reduce the burden for applicants related to obtaining required documents.

The College of Dietitians of Ontario (CDO) enables applicants to arrange for copies of official transcripts and degrees to be sent directly from its qualifications assessment agency, World Education Services, to the CDO.

This policy reduces costs for applicants, as they only pay for one set of documents to be sent from the institutions which issued their credentials.

For some applicants, this may also mean that the CDO receives required documents faster.
