The Saskatchewan Veterinary Medical Association (SVMA) is an organization which brings together the two main functions of regulator and advocate for the veterinary profession in Saskatchewan.
As the regulator of the veterinary profession in Saskatchewan, SVMA is dedicated to the protection of the public by ensuring the proficiency, competency and ethical behavior of its members in the practice of veterinary medicine.
We regulate our own profession through the licensing of veterinarians, registration of veterinary technologists, inspection of practices and disciplining of members as required.
As the advocate for the veterinary profession in Saskatchewan, the Association promotes veterinary professionals and veterinary medicine.
We support the physical, personal, financial and professional well-being of our members through continuing education, public outreach and education and member programs and services.
