60-day member comment period on new Bylaws is now closed


New SVMA Bylaws 

As announced at the 2017 Annual General Meeting, the Association is undertaking a full rewrite of our Bylaws for clarity, simplicity and relevance to modern practice. SVMA Council contracted McKercher LLP Barristers and Solicitors to do a complete revision of the Saskatchewan Veterinary Bylaw document. The draft document is available on the SVMA website for all members to view.

Members had a widely advertised 60-day window of opportunity to submit their comments, between March 1 and April 30 2018. Thank you to all members who posted their comments or questions.

The final draft of new Bylaws will be presented to the members present at the 2018 AGM on Friday September 7th at the Sheraton Cavalier Hotel in Saskatoon for voting.

Operational Policies

Drafts of supplemental operational policy documents that address the day-to-day functioning of certain sections of the Bylaws are also posted on the members side:

Because they are not part of the Bylaws, the supplementary documents can be revised by the Council. Members may send comments about the supplementary documents to Council for consideration at any time.
