To add to Marg Hedley's information about the course at Guelph:
Simon Fraser University in Vancouver has offered distance education courses
for more than 25 years. Thousands of students take courses every
semester on a trimester basis. We have two nutrition courses
available at the moment as well as a complete Health & Fitness
Certificate Program aimed mostly at fitness instructors.
The university pays for long distance contact
with the tutor for anyone in Canada. Students outside the country pay
their own long distance telephone charges. Call toll-free 1-800-242-1201 or
1-800-663-1411. The Simon Fraser (SFU) courses are also available from the
Open Learning Agency (1-800-663-9711) for whom we reserve a number of
spaces each semester. Admission requirements are less stringent at
the Open Learning Agency than at SFU (or UBC).
I have to fess up that I write the SFU nutrition courses.
I understand that Athabasca University in Alberta (1-800-561-6826) also
offers nutrition courses used by dietitians for upgrading.
University of British Columbia has 2 very good food science courses
by distance education. Call 604-822-6565 collect for more information.
P.S. This information is all in the Nutrition Resources Guidebook
