RVTTC & NAVTA announces agreement renewed 

 

OTTAWA, ON – On November 3, 2018 at the CVTEA Veterinary Stakeholders Meeting in Schaumberg, Illinois, the Registered Veterinary Technologists and Technicians of Canada (RVTTC) and the National Association of Veterinary Technicians (NAVTA) renewed their affiliation by signing a Letter of Agreement. 

 

In 2001, the organizations collaborated and developed a Letter of Agreement between the NAVTA and the RVTTC (previously known as CAAHTT, Canadian Association of Animal Health Technologists and Technicians) with a goal to work for the advancement and recognition of the veterinary technology profession. As both organizations have developed, experienced transition and growth since that time, the RVTTC and NAVTA joined in an opportunity to renew this affiliation letter, re-affirming our collaboration with the on-going development of our profession. 

 

"On behalf of NAVTA, I am thrilled to renew this collaborative agreement with our colleagues in Canada,” says Kara M. Burns, MS, MEd, LVT, VTS (Nutrition), NAVTA President. “We have many common interests and opportunities to work together for the good of our profession. Collaboration among our national associations will strengthen our role on the veterinary team and ultimately improve patient care." 

 

With the goal to work for the advancement and recognition of the veterinary technologist profession, the Registered Veterinary Technologists & Technicians of Canada (RVTTC) and the National Association of Veterinary Technicians of America (NAVTA) agree to: 

• Collaborate on efforts to promote the veterinary nursing and veterinary technology profession 

• Identify issues where the two associations share common interests and work together to affect change 

• Create a network for sharing information 

• Support each other’s mission statements 

 

“The Registered Veterinary Technologists and Technicians of Canada Association (RVTTC) is very excited to sign the affiliation agreement together with the North American Veterinary Technicians Association (NAVTA)” says Heather Shannon, RVT, RVTTC President. “This affiliation will encourage collaborative work between the Canadian and United States Associations meeting the RVTTC mission statement of uniting, advancing and strengthening the RVT profession. The RVTTC and NAVTA affiliation agreement will provide an opportunity to work together on common interests, we are stronger when we work together!” 

 

The Registered Veterinary Technologists and Technicians of Canada is looking forward to the upcoming opportunities this affiliation agreement will produce between NAVTA and the RVTTC. Please follow on social media as we announce new and upcoming projects.
