In Canada, licensing for veterinary medicine is the responsibility of the provincial veterinary association or a separate licensing body empowered by provincial legislation.

The role and authority of the provincial licensing body is to protect and serve the public interest through the regulation of the practice of veterinary medicine. While the general requirements to practise veterinary medicine are similar, specific requirements differ from province to province.

The addresses of the licensing bodies in each of the 10 provinces and territories are listed below.
