In 2020, the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians (OAVT) celebrated 50 years. Over the past 50 years, industry partnerships have grown and strengthened, united by the common goal to enhance the health and welfare of animals through veterinary team education and events.

Over the past several years, the OAVT has increased partnership opportunities through events, publications and content features. We invite discussions from all members of the veterinary community regarding new ideas, programs and proposals. 

If you have a partnership you would like to discuss, please contact Catrina Watson, the OAVT’s Events & Sponsorship Manager.

Currently, our annual proprietary event roster includes:

  • Ottawa Symposium (September)
  • RVT Month (October)
  • Annual Conference (February / March)
  • Member only webinars (Various dates)
