July 26, 2018

The Registered Veterinary Technologists and Technicians of Canada (RVTTC) has announced a new member initiative designed to strengthen the RVT profession in Canada. 

This travel bursary was created to provide funds for RVTs who may want to expand their professional knowledge or skills as an RVT and require additional financial support to attend a conference or continuing education activity. A maximum of $1000 available per bursary. Applications will need to show how the funds will enhance their skills, goals or career development, while providing a contribution to the veterinary community.

This program is a new RVTTC member benefit and open to all RVT members of RVTTC (BCVTA, ABVTA, SAVT, MVTA, OAVT, and EVTA) to support their continued professional growth as RVTs.

The funds for the 2018 RVTTC Travel Bursary were raised this past year by #Proudly RVT donations by RVTs supporting RVTs and a matching sponsorship by Petplan Pet Insurance. Sponsorship opportunities are now available for 2019 RVTTC Travel Bursary. To find out how you can support RVTs, contact RVTTC Executive Director Shannon Brownrigg, RVT, for more information and future opportunities.
