CVMA Welcomes Dr. Enid Stiles as New Member of its Executive Committee

July 20, 2017

The Canadian Veterinary Medical Association is pleased to welcome Dr. Enid Stiles to its Executive Committee. Dr. Stiles will also represent veterinarians in Quebec on Council

Dr. Stiles graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College with a DVM in 2000. Prior to her veterinary degree, she completed a Bachelor of Science (Conservation Biology) at the University of Ottawa and a Masters in Clinical Sciences (Behaviour Medicine) at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Montréal, in 2009. 

International Veterinary medicine is a passion of Dr. Stiles. As a founding member of Veterinarians Without Borders Canada, Dr. Stiles has been fortunate to work with people and animals around the world. She believes strongly in working for, and with, communities in need to foster the health of animals, people, and the environments that sustain us all. 

Dr. Stiles works closely with Montreal based cat and dog rescue groups as well as her continued work with VWB and CVMA on improving veterinary services for remote and under serviced communities in Canada. 

In recent years, Dr. Stiles has become a regular presence in print, television, radio and social media advocating on current national and international animal health issues. Her interest and experience in veterinary behaviour medicine and animal welfare have been highlighted at speaking engagements with a recent focus on alternatives to feline partial digit amputation (declawing). In 2015, Dr. Stiles was selected as member of the CVMA National Issues Committee.

Dr. Stiles was born in Newfoundland, but has also lived in Zimbabwe, Ottawa, Guelph and now Montréal. Dr. Stiles is passionate about helping animals and their families by providing excellent care and compassion to all of her patients, no matter how big or small. In 2009, Dr Stiles opened her own small animal practice, Sherwood Park Animal Hospital, in the West Island of Montréal. It has grown rapidly and is now staffed by four veterinarians and offers a complete veterinary behaviour service.
