The Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) is the premier centre of veterinary education, research and expertise in Western Canada and a key member of Canada's veterinary, public health and food safety network. Nearly 400 undergraduate and graduate students are enrolled at the internationally-recognized veterinary college that includes a veterinary teaching hospital, provincial diagnostic laboratory and large-scale research facilities.
For decades, western Canadian students with a passion for veterinary medicine had to leave their region to pursue their dreams. The situation changed in 1963 when Canada's western provinces agreed to establish a regional veterinary college at the University of Saskatchewan. In 1969, the first class graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine and the new building was officially dedicated.
The agreement recognizes WCVM's involvement in providing extension and continuing education for veterinarians, animal health technologists, and the residents of Western Canada. The most recent agreement, which was signed in 2007, allows for increases in student enrolment quotas by any of the four provinces during the five-year period covered by this agreement.
