Welcome to the SBCV
In 2011, the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) and the Society of British Columbia Veterinarians (SBCV) joined forces to create the CVMA-SBCV. The CVMA and the SBCV are partners in pursuing their shared commitment to serve the needs of the veterinarians of British Columbia through the delivery of valuable and pertinent national and provincial services and programs.
The SBCV provides provincial services like local professional development opportunities, social and networking events. The SBCV also represents the interests of BC veterinarians with the provincial government, animal welfare organizations and other stakeholders in the animal health care profession in that province. It is an effective provincial agent, providing local perspectives on developments and issues affecting the veterinary profession in B.C., and creating opportunities for those issues to be recognized and included by the CVMA in its national advocacy efforts. The CVMA is the focal point for national representation activities and the delivery of important programs, tools and services to support veterinarians personally and professionally.
If you are a veterinarian in the province of British Columbia, we invite you to learn more about the CVMA and the SBCV. Together, and with your continued support, we will ensure a strong and progressive veterinary profession in British Columbia.
