Unauthorized Practice Committee

The Unauthorized Practice Committee (UPC) is a standing committee created by the MVMA council. The UPC was created to protect the public by ensuring that only those that are licensed in Manitoba are providing veterinary services. The committee is compromised of dedicated experts that review and investigate reports of unauthorized practice and assess the level of risk posed by these reports and conduct of non-MVMA members.

The Unauthorized Practice Committee for small animals is currently in need of new members. If you are interested in joining this committee, or for more information about this committee, please contact Barb Kryzanowski, MVMA Deputy Registrar, barbk@mvma.ca
