Hi! Thanks for the question.

The Dietitians of Canada website is a very good source to answer these questions.

First of all, professional nutritionists are recognized as Dietitians
under Canadian law. This is explained in length by our first link

"What is the Difference Between a Dietitian and a Nutritionist?"

How much do they make?

"On average, an entry-level clinical dietitian can anticipate making
$40,000+ per year."

"Becoming a Dietitian"

You can get more detailed salary figures from this 2003 report. It
isn't new but at least you will have an idea.

"Results of New Graduate Survey - 2003"

What types of jobs do they usually work in?

They usually work as clinical dietitians in health facilities like
hospitals. They also do research assisting the private sector in
product development or consumer education.

You can get a run down of where and what type of work they do in our next link.

"Where Do Dietitians Work?"

How many jobs are available?

There is no exact figures as to how many jobs but the outlook is very
good for this career according to Job Futures Canada.

As for current conditions of employment, dietitians only has a .07%
unemployment rate and the assesment is that there are more jobs than
qualified people to fill these positions.
