Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVTs)

The OAVT RRP is looking for RVTs in all 36 Public Health Units (PHUs) across Ontario. To see what area you fall under please see this map. RVTs are eligible to cover areas that are within a 1hr radius of their home or work base location.

Becoming an OAVT RRP Team Member gives RVTs across the province an opportunity to help contribute to the health and safety of both people and animals in their community. RVTs that are certified and contracted RRP Team Members are remunerated for each collection and associated mileage.

Training for RVTs to become a member of the RRP Team is provided online at no charge by the OAVT RRP. To learn more about RRP training click on the “View Training” button located on the RRP training badge in your member portal.
