MVMA Lobbying for Funding of Non-IPA WCVM Students

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.
