The Manitoba Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA) is seeking two or more new veterinarian representatives to be part of the MVMA Peer Review Committee (PRC). The role of a veterinarian representative is to review/investigate complaints against MVMA members and reach decisions regarding these complaints within the framework of The Veterinary Medical Act  and the General By-laws of the MVMA as part of a Peer Review Complaints Committee (PRCC). All PRCC members must approach each complaint as impartially as possible. For more information, or if you are interested in joining the Peer Review Committee, please contact the MVMA Deputy Registrar, Barb Kryzanowski via email at

Renewals for Veterinarians, RVTs, and Veterinary Corporations will launch in the coming weeks. The MVMA has transitioned to a new data management system and as such members will notice changes in the renewal process. Please stay tuned for more information.

2023/2024 Fees

RVT Fees

The MVMA Council resolved to increase the 2023/2024 veterinary technologist membership fees by 13.1%. This increase includes inflation from February 2021-2022 and February 2022-2023. Unlike veterinarians, the February 2021-February 2022 inflation fees had not been applied to RVT membership fees. This was due to the previous difference in annual membership renewal dates.

All fees (except RVT fees)

The MVMA Council resolved to increase all fees (except RVT fees) by the Manitoba February 2022-February 2023 inflation rate of 6.4%. This allows the MVMA to operate sustainably while being sensitive to the economic issues caused by high inflation.

Legal Fund Fees and Marketing Fund Fees

On April 5, 2023, the MVMA Council resolved to no longer charge separate Legal Fund and Marketing Fund fees. These fees are now included in normal membership fees. To ensure that the MVMA maintains a sufficient Legal Fund, it has adopted the Legal Fund Policy, available for review here  (please note that you need to be logged into the member side of the MVMA website to view). The MVMA Council will continue to budget for marketing in its annual budget.

Veterinary Corporations

Please note that the Veterinary Corporation Renewals will now be completed through the MVMA data management system. Voting shareholders of a Veterinary Corporation and previously identified contact persons will receive emails in the coming weeks, allowing them to log in and renew the Veterinary Corporation Permit. Please stay tuned for more information.

As the MVMA Council continues to address the shortage of veterinary professionals in Manitoba, it wishes to advise membership that it has sent a letter to government requesting subsidization for the eight (8) Manitoba un-funded veterinary students at the WCVM. The MVMA Council thanks the MVMA Rural Issues Committee (formerly the Vet Shortage and Rural Forum Committee) for its work on this matter. The MVMA Council is currently seeking support from industry groups in Manitoba and looks forward to working collaboratively with government on this issue.
