Governments Support Western College Of Veterinary Medicine

Three provincial governments announced the renewal of their financial commitment to the University of Saskatchewan’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM).
 
The Manitoba, BC and Saskatchewan governments’ agreement with the University of Saskatchewan provides over $134 million to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine for the next five years.
 
“The Manitoba government is pleased to renew our commitment to training in veterinary medicine and continue our long-standing partnership that provides high-quality education and training opportunities to Manitobans and helps meet labour market demand across the province,” said Manitoba Economic Development and Training Minister Ralph Eichler. “This is an important investment in Manitoba’s agriculture sector that aligns with needs under the Manitoba Protein Advantage Strategy. We need good veterinarians in place to help us practice safe animal welfare and keep growing animal agriculture in Manitoba.”
 
The WCVM is the premier centre of veterinary education, research and expertise in Western Canada.
 
The college’s new interprovincial agreement is in place until 2025.
