2022 Registered Veterinary Technologist Compensation Review

The Alberta Veterinary Technologist Association (ABVTA); the Saskatchewan Association of Veterinary Technologists (SAVT) and the Manitoba Veterinary Technologists Association (MVTA) commissioned this review.  All three Associations are professional membership associations for registered veterinary technologists within their respective provinces.

In addition, information gathered provides a baseline for future surveys and establishes common duties and responsibilities within the profession.
