Saskatchewan Proclaims Veterinary Technician Week

Released on October 15, 2018

Today, Agriculture Minister David Marit proclaimed October 14 to 20, as Veterinary Technician Week in Saskatchewan.  The week coincides with National Veterinary Technician Week in both Canada and the United States.

“Through their varied roles, veterinary technologists are key to ensuring the health and welfare of Saskatchewan’s livestock and other animals,” Marit said.  “Everyone in the agriculture industry greatly appreciates the work of our veterinary technologists.  Celebrating Veterinary Technician Week gives us a much-needed opportunity to recognize that work.”

“Registered Veterinary Technologists are dedicated to promoting and ensuring animal health and welfare, as well as public health and food safety,” Saskatchewan Association of Veterinary Technologists Board President Lois Ridgway said.  “They’re an important part of the veterinary health care team, and the Saskatchewan Association of Veterinary Technologists is glad to see their work recognized and celebrated through Veterinary Technician Week each year.”

Approximately 400 registered veterinary technologists work in Saskatchewan in a variety of settings, such as veterinary clinics, livestock operations, and veterinary pharmaceutical and supply companies.

The proclamation of Veterinary Technician Week in Saskatchewan is supported by the Saskatchewan Association of Veterinary Technologists, which has been representing veterinary technologists in the province since 1984.
