Member Profile and logging in to the dietitians.ca/member website

How do I log into the DC member website and my member profile?

Check your email for a message from christina.dcosta@dietitians.ca on April 29th. It contains a link asking you to reset your password. Please click on the link provided. Your username is the email address to which the link was sent. You will be prompted to reset your password once you login. Once you have reset your password, you should have access to your member profile.

This is a good time to update your member profile, however you do not need complete the update in order to have access to the member only pages of the DC website.

Are you having challenges logging into the system? Here are some things you can do:
  1. On April 29, 2019 when we launched our new system, an email from christina.dcosta@dietitians.ca was sent to you with a link to reset your password. This email is not SPAM. You can follow this link to begin the reset process.
  2. Haven’t received an email with a reset link? Try an old email address that you may have used when joining DC. Due to errors in the new system, some members received communications to old email addresses.
  3. Still no email with a reset link? Please send an email to contactus@dietitians.ca with “Link Not Received” in the subject line and a new reset link will be sent to you as soon as possible.
What has changed with the launch of the new member information system?

You will notice a new look to your DC member profile, as well as a number of new questions and fields to be completed. Once you log in and go to your member profile you will see the tabs below. You can review and complete your profile, one tab at a time (see below)



Why have new questions been added to my profile? 
 
Some of these questions help assess your member fee type (for example, first year members, student members, retired members or the new part time member fee). Other questions and fields provide us with information that will help in understanding how Dietitians of Canada can bring more value to membership in the future and help you get the most from your DC membership.
